HOW TO MAKE CLEAR SLIME!
Bowl/Spoon or Spatula
Step 1: Make your activator (video included!).
Step 2: Grab a mixing bowl, spoon or spatula, glycerin (provided), a teaspoon measuring spoon, and the activator you made.
Step 3: Empty bottle of glue into your empty bowl.
Step 4: Add 1/2 teaspoon of glycerin.
Step 5: (Optional) Add 2-3 drops of scent.
Step 6: Stir together. Give it a good 30+ seconds of mixing before moving on to the next step.
Step 7: Add 1 teaspoon of activator.
Step 8: Mix THOROUGHLY! It may take up to a minute to do this properly.
Step 9: Add another teaspoon of activator, mix again! At this point, the slime may look stringy and/or clumpy. That's okay! Trust the process and keep stirring as vigorously as possible. It may feel like it takes a while to fully incorporate, but just stick with it! We like to give it at least two to three full minutes.
Step 10: Add a third teaspoon of activator; mix thoroughly.
Step 11: Use 1 finger to test the slime and see if it is sticky.
Step 12: If it sticks to you, add another 1/2 teaspoon of activator. But if it’s barely sticky, you may want to take it out of the bowl and continue to mix with your hands. The more you break
up the strands, the smoother the slime will actually become. You can also dip your hands in some activator and do it that way.
Step 13: Mix again if you added activator.
Step 14: Continue adding until the slime is no longer sticky. Now you have clear! It does take time to clear up as it is now full of air bubbles. Note: if your slime feels hard at this point, add glycerin one drop at a time. Mix thoroughly between drops; you may only need one! (Only do this if it's hard!)
Step 15: Decorate to your heart's content. Add bingsu beads for some extra crunch and/or add your sand for a completely new texture!!
