Let's get down to it, shall we?
It's good to gather everything together on your work surface.
(We moved upstairs to my sewing table for better light.)
Here's what you'll need:
1 small mixing bowl
1 larger mixing bowl
1 large liquid measuring cup (at least 2 cups)
1 cup measuring cup
1 cup white glue (Elmer's school glue works great)
2 T. liquid tempera paint or 7-10 drops of food coloring
1 cup water
1 1/3 cup warm water
4 tsp. borax laundry booster (look for it on the cleaning aisle.)
a spoon to stir
a rubber spatula is nice, too.
Start out by making Solution A.
Measure out your 1 cup of glue.
Slowly pour Solution A (glue solution) into Solution B.
Do not stir or mix!
The ah-ha moment has finally arrived! Plunge your hands into the bowl and gently lift up the mass of slimy glory.
Cool is an understatement here.
