  1. Hi Angela,
    We tried the recipe to a -T- and although it worked better than the last recipe it did not hold together. A sticky mess is what we ended up with, I could barely scrap it off my hands. More of the consistency of sticky slime, that would not hold it’s shape and the beads (yes the correct crafting/ bean bag chair ones) kept falling out of it:(
    Your’s looks perfect in the above pic, what’s your secret?

      Oh that’s awful! I’m so sorry for the mess! It sounds like you followed the recipe perfectly. I wonder if it’s the brand of Borax? Or maybe the brand of the glue? When things are pretty sticky (like with slime) I add in more Borax/water or I even use saline solution (which must contain boric acid.)

  2. would regular Elmar’s clear glue work? What would it be like without the foam beads, slime?

      Yes, clear glue would work. Without the foam beads, it would probably be like slime.
