How Would I Fix Flarp (Noise Putty)?

I was looking through my shelf in my room, and found a bottle of Flarp that had been sitting there for a good year or so. It had completely separated so, out of boredom, I mixed it together to find that it is still super sticking and liquidy. Is there any way to fix this problem, or am I stuck with a bottle of goop?

Normally this is made with water, white glue, food coloring, and borax powder. When you use this it will shrink all the time because your hands are absorbing the water that is in the putty. After a time it can get hard and dry out. In this case, you would need to cut this up and add some more warm water to make it work again. Yours seems to have separated and fallen apart and when you mixed it back together it became very sticky. If it was dried out you could just add some more water to the container. I would think that if it is fine, but just sticky I would try and dry this out a bit and get it where it is a bit hard. Then take some scissors to cut this up and start adding some warm water to the container to get it working again.

I'm not sure anyone has addressed your question as I'm understanding it. Your 'found' Flarp is sticky and liquidy and cannot be used? Not dried out??


Sometimes you can solve this problem by kneading it so try this first. It may take quite a lot of kneading (read a post on making putty to see how much to knead).

if that does not eliminate the sticky liquidy feel then you may have to try something else.add a teaspoon of baking soda (or borax).
Maybe use 1 teaspoon of borax, mixed with 1 cup of hot water (stir until fully dissolved). Only add a little bit at a time and work the borax (activator) through the slime.
Do not add too much at once, or you could over activate the compound.
On the chance that you do not want to use borax (or even have any) there are other things you can use such as eye contact solution and a little baking soda.

Hi There,

I think pouring a few drops of warm water over the dried out Flarp, and kneading it in, might work. I also read that cutting up the flarp, into little bits, while it is in a small container, will help the Flarp to absorb the warm water better. The cutting of the Flarp can be done before or after the warm water is added.
