Maddie Rae's Slime Tips and Tricks
Wash your hands after playing with or making slime, because most activators, especially borax, can irritate your skin.
If you end up using too much liquid starch, I recommend laying your slime out on a flat surface. After 5 minutes, re-knead your slime. It should come together.
When using tacky glue, use liquid starch. If you have to use borax, it will take 4-5 days to lose its stickiness.
Borax is good for squishy slime, but not ideal for long staying slime or super stretchy slime. Use liquid starch when you want your slime to last longer.
, use less food dye than when
. White glue is used when you want really bright colored slime.
When using glitter, try to avoid super fine glitter. Super fine will work with Clear glue, but larger particle glitter is preferred for white glue.
If you are using clear glue without dye, super fine glitter will act like a food dye and make some great effects.
You can find Pearl Dust at your local craft store in the cake making section. Try it to give your slime a pearly awesomeness.
, be sure to have neodymium magnets. It won't work without these super powerful magnets.
Any type of eye drops, like Visine, can be used in place of Borax. Eye drops are best used with white glue, but not with clear glues, as it will make clear glue really hard.
Instead of buying Orbeez at the store, find water beads at your craft shop or Amazon and you will get 20-times the amount for the same price.
When making slime, get the
gallon jugs of glue
. Little bottles won't last more than one glue batch.
If you are looking for cool ways to decorate your slime, check out polymer fruit cane slices or other nail art pieces that you can find on Amazon easily for cheap.
Use school glue instead of "glue all" because "glue all" is like tacky glue and is not as effective.
When making fluffy slime, use shaving cream sparingly as too much will make your slime like spaghetti.
