  • 118ml Water
  • 1/2 tspn Borax
  • 1/4 cup Hot Water
  • Food Colouring

Method

  1. Pour your glue into a bowl. Add the 118ml of water, Mix until completely combined
  2. Add a few drops of your chosen food colouring. Mix until well combined
  3. Add 1/4 cup of hot water to a separate container, add the 1/2 teaspoon of Borax & stir until combined
