"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
2 c. white glue 2 c. water Liquid food coloring or tempera or acrylic paint 1 tsp. borax
Pour glue into a mixing bowl. Slowly add 1 1/2 cups of water and several drops of food coloring or a couple tablespoons of paint.
In another bowl, dissolve borax in 1/2 cup of water.
Add dissolved borax to glue mixture and let it stand a few minutes. Knead for 10 minutes, until slime separates between your fingers. Pour off any remaining liquid. Let it condense in a zip-loc bag in the refrigerator.
Keeps in refrigerator for 2 weeks.
