1. Measure into mixing bowl cup of white glue and 3/4 cup of water, food coloring and mix until thoroughly
smooth and milky. Be sure not to over-color the mixture; a medium to pastel color is usually the best that
can be achieved considering the white glue.
2. Once evenly colored and smooth, measure 1 teaspoon of Borax and 2 tablespoons of water into the second
measuring cup. The Borax won't dissolve entirely, but do your best. While stirring the glue solution, slowly
pour the Borax solution into it. Clumps and globs will begin to form.
3. Immediately remove these clumps and globs transferring them into the empty mixing bowl. Do not worry
if they seem too wet or sticky.
Repeat making and mixing the Borax solution until all of the glue solution is used up (typical is 3 mixtures).
4. Immediately soak the original mixing bowl and stirrer in warm water with any remaining Borax. Drain any
standing water from the bowl of goo.
5. Test the surface of the goo with your finger. If the mixture sticks to your finger, wet your hands. If
not, take the mass of goo and begin to squeeze any pockets of water from the mixture, kneading the mixture
as you go. If you find any Borax crystals in the mixture, run them briefly beneath a stream of cool water
to remove. Let mixture sit for 5 minutes to partially air cure.
6. Finally the mixture is ready to play with. Be sure to store it in an airtight container when through.
