Galaxy Slime

This slime didn’t turn out quite as hoped, but it was still a lot of fun! The original pin used liquid food coloring vs. the Wilton icing coloring that I had on hand, so the results were more tar monster than galaxy slime.

This slime requires a few more ingredients than the Frozen slime we made yesterday, but nothing to crazy. We used Sta-Flo liquid starch, Elmer’s clear glue, assorted fine glitter and food coloring. Liquid or Wilton, maker’s choice!
You start by pouring your glue into a bowl. Add in food coloring at your discretion. For your galaxy effect, use purple and blue. My mistake was adding black, that gave me the tar look.

Once it’s all one big mess, add in a little liquid starch. Don’t go crazy with it, you can always add more as needed, but unless you have more glue, you’ll have to scrap it if you add too much starch.
This is the messy part. Dig your hands in and mush it all together! The Wilton coloring turned my hands funny colors for a bit, but it did wash off. For some reason when I make icing, the same coloring is impossible to get off…….

Arthur wasn’t quite sure what to make of it. It got too sticky after playing with it, so we added a little more starch and it was perfect.

Is anyone else remembering the tar monster in the original Scooby Doo? Tony, who loves the show, was very amused by the reference.

I think this is my favorite part of the slime. Holding it up and just letting it’s own weight stretch it out!
Happy sliming all!
