Since slime has become such a popular item these days, it only feels right to cover how you can make some of the best slime you'll ever come across. While you would think it's a process that requires a lot of knowledge and scientific know-how, that isn't the case at all. As a matter of fact, making your own slime is quite easy! One thing that you'll need, above all else, is a reliable slime recipe that you can count on. When your kids are clawing at your legs in anticipation, desperately waiting for their finished product of slime, you need to deliver!
The most traditional method of creating your own slime would revolve around the use of both glue and water, as well as a form of liquid starch. Cornstarch could work, but realistically any form of liquid starch is going to be a solid option; it just needs to be able to bind everything together.
Why is Finding the Right Slime Recipe Important?
The right recipe is incredibly important because it's going to be something that you'll want to go through with ease. If the recipe you're looking at is calling for all sorts of bells and whistles, as well as chemicals that you've never even heard of, it may not be the right one for you. Before you can get out there and start making some of the more complicated forms of slim, you need to start off with the simple things.
What Do I Need?
The materials should be easy to obtain, and you might not even have to do any shopping. Take a look at the list and check off everything that you've already got sitting around the house!
- 1 cup of Elmer's glue (white)
- 1/2 cup of water (room temperature)
- 1/2 cup of liquid starch
- A spoon
- A bowl to be used for mixing
- Measuring cups
- Any kind of food coloring or additional items you'd like (glitter, beads, etc.)
Once you've been through the process, it will only get easier. The first run may not seem as ideal as you had hoped, but that's why so many amazing chefs take it upon themselves to hand-measure everything. It may not be the perfect measurement, but it does make the slime much more personal.
1) Take the glue and water that you've (maybe) measured out and mix them together in a bowl; mix until they are completely blended together
2) Add the coloring that you've picked out to the mixture
3) Finally, add in the liquid starch and mix everything together completely with the spoon
At this point, you should have a relatively blubbery bowl of slime staring back up at you, in which case, good job! If the slime seems like it's a bit too thick, add some more room temperature water to the mixture and thin things out. If it's too thick, add some more starch!
With this slime recipe, you can personalize your slime as you please – there's no telling how far your imagination can take you.
