It’s easy to make a “just enough” batch, whipping up just enough bathtub paint each time so there’s very little waste. Add the food coloring to each paint container, and mix well with a spoon or the end of a paint brush.
I think the key is using natural food coloring, which in my experience really doesn’t stain to the same extent as more conventional food dyes.
