Many toy stores sell one form or another of colored Slime. Usually they come in small tubs, are slightly unpleasant-smelling, and are cold and clammy to the touch (apparently because of an endothermic reaction). The recipe below is the exact recipe for commercial Slime, and makes a small, palm-sized amount:
1 fluid ounce of 5% Polyvinyl Alcohol (acid-free art glue) solution (in water)
several milliliters of 4% sodium tetraborate (Borax) solution (in water)
a few drops of food coloring.
Mix the food coloring with the Polyvinyl Alcohol solution. Add one milliliter of the Borax solution and stir like crazy for 2 minutes. Adding more Borax solution will yield thicker slime if desired; nice thick slime can be had with approxiately 4-5 ml of Borax solution per fluid ounce of polyvinyl alcohol solution. Store the slime in a clean, covered container.
