March 28, 2017 / Do

You will need:-

A Bowl

A Spatula

Some Measuring cups

Ready Mixed Paint


½ cup of shaving foam

½ cup of foamy hand soap

2 pumps or 1 table spoon of hand/body lotion

1 cup of PVA Glue ( and have 1/2 a cup extra close by to add in when thicking to the consistency you need)

1 table spoon of corn flour (add a litle more cornflour if needed if you want to make your slime less sticky as you mix it)

1 cup of water mixed with one table spoon of soda crystals/borax (or a cap full of sensitive liquid detergent without water if you can't find soda crystals)

You may need to add more soda crystals mixed with a little water or add a bit more liquid detergent to your slime mix depending on how thick you want your slime. These are the ingredients that will make your glue more sticky and thicker - turning it into slime.
