Lets get started making slime!
First things first, you should know how to make slime. If you are not sure how to make slime, you are missing out. Between clear glue slime, regular slime, and even fluffy slime there are so many nonborax options to get you going.
ZOMBIE SLIME RECIPE
Before we get started you will need a few ingredients for your slime. For us, that is a Gallon of Elmer’s Glue, Liquid Starch, a colorant (I prefer Wilton’s Food Coloring) and for this, the additive that makes fluffy slime work, extra moisturizing shaving cream.
Here is a list of items you will need for your zombie slime recipe.
- White school glue – I always use GALLON SIZED GLUE. Tiny bottles do not produce a lot of slime and this is an addicting project. Go ahead and get the gallon size. You cannot find this in most stores.
- Liquid Starch – I always order this same time as glue
- Food coloring – I use Wilton’s Color Right for the results
NOTE: if you prefer to make your zombie slime with saline solution, you can follow instructions and learn how to make saline slime
How to make Zombie Slime
Usually the ratio to a good slime is about 1 cup white glue and 1/4th to 1/3rd cup liquid starch. You simply mix the two together and start kneading it back and forth until its no longer sticky.
The more starch you add, the thicker and more low flow your slime will get. If you add too much starch, it can become hard as a rock. While 1/4th starch worked for us on this particular slime, you may need a little more or a little less. Its far easier to add than take away.
Once you have you your glue and starch together, you can begin kneading your slime till its no longer sticky. If you want to see a way that is done and is fail proof, watch the video below. You can see the stages of slime here and that often helps people discover what they are doing wrong when making slime.
