- 1 cup of glue
- 1 cup of water
- Mix those ingredients together. I did that in the metal bowl pictured below.
- In a separate container mix 1 cup of warm water with your choice of food coloring (or no food coloring if you just want white.) with 1 tbsp of Borax. Mix until the Borax is completely dissolved.
- Take 3/4 a cup of the mixture of Borax and pour into the glue mixture. The remaining 1/4 will be thrown away. You will need to knead the mixture at this point. It will seriously feel like brain matter. Not that I have ever felt brain matter but if I had to venture a guess I would say it would feel like silly putty before it is all mixed together. :)
I bought these little containers at Gordon Foods and they ended up being the perfect size. This is 3 different batches that I made. We still have purple to do because, oh the horror, if we don't have any purple silly putty!
FYI: Do NOT let this stuff get on clothes, carpet, or in hair. If it does, take an ice cube, freeze it, and then try to peel it up.
