Making Imitation Silly Putty





Introduction: Making Imitation Silly Putty

It seems everyone tries but get this wrong? I have found the perfect proportions. So no more glue balls. This isn't slime. This video is my recipe for making a silly putty like substance. I am a chemist and it works perfectly. It is a polyvinyl acetate polymer.

Metric measurements
25mL glue
20mL water
15mL Saturated Borax Solution

No matter how many times I do this, I never get bored making it. It acts like snot but it isn't sticky. It flows like slime but isn't greasy. The best part is you can make this "Silly Puddy Like" substance at home. All you need is the Borax (Sodium Borate) and Glue.

I thought the puddy worked very well, right now I've promised my 4 and 5 year old neighbors that ill make some for them. They thought it was Flarp.

Oh my gosh! I think that is the weirdest thing about home made silly putty. It flows like slime but isn't greasy! I also feel like I need to wash my hands after I play with it.

can you add paint instead of water?

I don't think that would work, they are different substances. If you want color, try adding food coloring!

Where are the instructions?

You just mix the three ingredients together to make the putty.

where did you get the stuff?

Throw it on the roof in a cinema and watch people below it freak out when it falls :D
