Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Combine the glue, paint, and 3/4 cup water in a bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together 1 Tbsp. borax and 1/4 cup water.
  3. Pour the borax mixture into the glue mixture and stir until a blob forms. Don't worry if the blob looks stringy; it will smooth out on its own as you work it.
  4. Remove the stringy blob from the mixture, press it into a ball working it with your hands while working the extra water out. Place it in the airtight container.
  5. Keep making another batch of the borax and water and pour it into the remaining glue mixture until the glue mixture is gone.

When not playing with the goo, make sure to keep it in the airtight container.
