Start by gathering all the items that you will need.
Cover your work area with butcher paper or newspaper. Spills or drips are most times
unavoidable, and clean up is much easier if you don't have to clean your work surface
Step 1 - Measure out 1 cup of glue
First, you will need to measure out 1 cup of your crafting glue and pour it into the mixing bowl. If any glue sticks to your measuring cup just use the rubber spatula to scrape the rest of it out.
Step 2 - Measure out 1/2 teaspoon of fragrance
You will need to choose a skin safe fragrance and measure out approximately 1/2 teaspoon and slowly pour it into the glue.
Step 3 - Stir the fragrance into the glue
Using the rubber spatula, slowly stir the fragrance oil into the glue until it is fully incorporated.
Step 4 - Measure 1/8 teaspoon of baking soda
Measure approximately 1/8 teaspoon of baking soda and add it into the mixture.
Step 5 - Add food coloring
Add a few drops of food coloring (or any water based colorant) until you have your desired amount.
Step 6 - Stir food coloring and baking soda
Using your rubber spatula, stir in the baking soda and food coloring until they are fully dispersed in the glue mixture. The baking soda tends to ball up so make sure you mix it all in.
Step 7 - Add glitter (optional)
This part is optional but who doesn't love glitter! Simply sprinkle in the desired amount and stir it in with the rubber spatula.
Step 8 - Add a few squirts of contact solution
Here's where it can get a bit messy. Take your contact solution and add a few squirts into the mixture and start stirring. You will have to keep adding the solution until you start to see the slime balling up. It helps if you use your hands once it gets to that point but MAKE SURE YOU COVER YOUR HANDS IN CONTACT SOLUTION BEFORE YOU TOUCH THE SLIME.
Step 9 - Slime is ready
Once you are able to pick up the slime without it sticking to your skin, it's ready!
