But what about slime that you do not want to turn into floam?

We have found a fun way to make your slime moldable and bendable without additional additives outside the regular slime recipe. You simply need to make sure you have already created your slime. We have found fluffy slime (with shaving cream) does the best at giving you a poofy strong feel and by adding just a tad more starch than a regular recipe, gives you the right hold.

Once you have your slime, let it flatten out. Your slime should not be sticky, but easily come off your hands.

Lay a pipe cleaner down inside your slime and fold over.
