We've talked about many different kinds of slime, but when it comes to being futuristic and dedicated to the world of sci-fi (much like I am), learning how to make clear slime may be something that intrigues you. Whether you're making it for a video, film, pictures or even just to have some fun, clear slime is going to be a great way to jump-start your arts and crafts career. There is a reason as to why slime has become so popular, and it's mainly because it can be tons of fun. Not only to play with, but to make as well! Sometimes clear slime can be referred to as “ice slime”, as it does sport a relatively ice-like appearance.
Being creative with your slime is what the entire slime revolution is all about, as it's essentially giving you an opportunity to express yourself. While it may not be in fancy paintings or portraits, it's still something that you've made yourself! The slime is not only useful for playing with, but you could go as far as using it for decorations as well – you could make the ultimate “DIY room”!
Some individuals would prefer to avoid recipes for slime that have borax in them, but the fact of the matter is that most high-quality slime projects are going to make use of it. Just don't eat them and everything should be fine.
• 1/2 Cup of Elmer's Glue
• 1 Cup of Hot Water (mixed with 2 TBSP of room temperature water)
• 1/2 TSP of Borax
While the ingredient list is very simple, it's still going to produce an effective slime – one that will look like liquid glass, in a sense! Since it's a translucent slime, there is no need for any additional glitter or coloring; the perfect slime for when you're in a hurry (or just enjoy keeping things simple).
If you haven't made slime in the past, there truly isn't a lot to it. All you're really doing is putting all of the ingredients together in a bowl and then mixing them until you've reached the desired consistency, but you have to know which order you've got to put them in (obviously!). If you do it backwards or just miss a step completely, your slime isn't going to look (or feel) very good. Be sure to follow closely!
1. Make your solution of Borax in a separate container, putting together both the hot water mixture and the borax until they are both completely combined
2. Take your second bowl and put the glue into it
3. Add a tablespoon (approximately) of water into your glue bowl
4. At this point, you'll want to add about 3 teaspoons of your borax solution into the glue; begin mixing and bringing the slime together
5. Add additional borax solution as you feel fit, to ensure that your slime meets your standards of consistency (too much of it will make the slime hard)
6. Knead the slime with your hands and judge the stickiness, if it's too sticky, it needs more Borax solution – too hard? It needs more glue!
7. Take out your liquid ice slime and enjoy!
