Condensed Milk Painting

(This post may contain affiliate links. For more information, see my disclosure policy.)

A week or so ago, I opened up a can of condensed milk for a recipe only to discover that the recipe actually called for evaporated milk!  I’ve had an opened can of condensed milk sitting in my fridge since then and was going to just throw it out, until I came across an idea on Pinterest today…condensed milk painting!

The pictures turned out well.  The paint gave a very glossy finish, something that the kids liked, it used things that I already had around the house and of course, it was edible!  Snuggle Puppy ate almost as much as he painted with!


  1. Clever! Love the pic of the paintbrush in his mouth. You can’t do that with most paints!

  2. What a sweet way to paint. Maybe we can try this once my milk allergy boy is in bed for a nap.

  3. great idea, thanks for sharing! as much as i love vietnamese iced coffee, i don’t think i can drink it every day to use up that can. who am i kidding? i could drink four of ’em a day but it wouldn’t help me lose the baby weight! ; )
