you could try vegitable oil and food coloring


that would stain so bad

I thought thats what paintballs were made of.

If not then you could try another type of colourant. (i don't know which)

that's what the basics where about a decade or two ago.  now they use a gellitan base.  No company will reveal their paint formula.  it's their edge over the compitition.  you people should watch that "How it's Made".  They had an episode today about paintballs.  Search it on  limewire or sumthin.

I tried re using squadbusters once. I mixed water, about five old paintballs, some corn starch(To thicken it, but you must heat the water to do this) and some hand soap(To help it wash out)

 

It made a very poor grenade(Blew up while i was filling it) but some decent paint.
