Always wanted to make the perfect slime but not quite sure how to get there? Follow this super simple recipe and experiment with your own colours and embellishments to make the slime of your dreams! Click through to the tutorial linked above from the Hobbycraft blog.

You Will Need How to Make Slime

1. Begin by filling your bowl with approx. 130 ml of PVA glue.

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!

3. Pour approx. 65ml of Elmer’s Magical Liquid Slime Activator and mix until mixture becomes harder to stir and slime begins to form. The 259ml bottle of Elmer’s Magical Liquid Slime Activator should make four batches of slime.

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.
