Homemade finger paints?

Anyone made them? I tried and it said it would take 5 minutes constantly stirring the corn starch, water and sugar over low heat for it to turn clear and into a thick gel... well, I stirred mine over low heat for FORTY-FIVE MINUTES (with the exception of not stirring so I could go to the bathroom-- didn't exect it to take so long, obviously) and it STILL did not turn clear???

I've had this "recipe" for a while and was wanting to try it out... But haven't yet... It sounds a lot like yours. http://familyfun.go.com/arts-and-cra...00aapaint.html

I made some last summer (can't remember the recipe) and it worked great, but after it dried it flaked off the paper what a mess!
