Step 2

Squeeze in some paint, and mix until you reach your desired colour.

 

At this point, you can also mix in any embellishments you want to add such as glitter or beads!

Step 3

Pour in approximately 65ml of Slime Activator and mix until mixture becomes harder to stir (and slime begins to form).

 

(The 300ml bottle of Slime Activator should make four batches of slime.)

Step 4
Take the slime out of the bowl onto a wipe-clean surface, and knead with both hands. Use your hands to manipulate and massage the slime – the more you work it, the less sticky it becomes and more it sticks to itself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It makes slime, but for me my slime keeps on melti I used the exact recipe: two times the amount of glue than activator and my slime turned to glue. So just in case add 5 - 10 ml extra of activator.
