Expert Crafting Tips

  • When crafting in groups, purchase value packs of glue to keep costs down.
  • It’s best to use bowls and mixing supplies that are designated for slime projects, or simply use disposable supplies.
  • You can use red food coloring instead of pink if that’s what you have on hand. Remember to gradually add in one drop at a time to reach the color you like most.
  • Try adding foam balls for a fun texture!
