Directions to Make Dragon Slime Recipe
Pour the clear glue into a medium bowl and add the 1/2 TBSP baking soda.
Mix in the ½ TSP of cosmetic powder which is usually an eyeshadow loose powder.
Tip: We used purple eyeshadow powder here, but try different bright colors like teal, blue, green or go with a completely mono-tone like white.
Add in 2 TBSP of water and 1-2 TBSP of Holographic Glitter
Add in 1 ½ TBSP of Saline Solution (add half in first, continue to mix, and if needed, add second half).
Use craft stick to initially mix ingredients and as soon as it starts to form…
When the consistency looks like this (above), then go on to next step.
Take the slime out of the bowl and knead, knead and knead until desired slime consistency.
