First of all, you are adorable. Followed!

Second of all, I wish I had watched your video before I tried to make it. I searched online for a recipe with specific amounts, and I found variations of the following:

1. In one bowl, 1/2 cup water mixed with 1/2 cup white or clear glue (and paint or food dye).

2. In another bowl, 1/2 cup warm water mixed with anywhere from 1/2 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon Borax.

3. Put the two together and mix.

I did this for a birthday party of twelve 10-year-olds, and it was chaos. And there were varying degrees of success. Even with the 1/2 teaspoon of Borax, there was a chance the slime wouldn't stretch without breaking unless you let it stretch very, very slowly. I think YOUR trick of adding the Borax solution a spoonful at a time was the secret. But the kids had a FANTASTIC time, so thank you SO MUCH for the idea!

Thanks for sharing and glad u like it. :)
Instead of Borax u can try with Liquid Starch or Tie Detergent.
