The 'Super Slime' Method:
You're on your way to creating some super cute personalised slimes!
Step 1) Pour your 8-oz. bottle of Tacky Glue into a bowl.
Step 2) Now add 1 tablespoon of baking soda and mix thoroughly.
Step 3) Colour!! Now you can add your paint(s) or food colouring into the mixture. Swirl it all in untill you have your desired shade. Make sure you also use Tulip 3D glitter paints for an extra sparkly shine & texture.
Step 4) Accessorize... Grab your glitters, add as much or as little glitter as you want! (Gem stones/ confetti also work really well)
Step 5) Go the extra mile! Sculpey's Bake shop is perfect for making your own miniture models. Stars, burgers, hearts, cakes, flowers... whatever takes your fancy! There are loads of polymer clay tutrorials so why not make some minitures and add them in too!
Step 6) Add 2 tablespoons of contact lens solution and mix until slime begins to form. Tip: Only contact lens solutions containing borate or boric acid will create slime, so check the ingredients before using
Step 7) Take the slime out of the bowl and knead with both hands. (Dont worry if it feels a little to sticky at first just keep going!)
!!! If slime is too sticky, add another ¼ teaspoon of contact lens solution !!!
