Easy Floam Slime Tutorial
- Elmer’s Glue. I like using the clear or colored style of glue for most slimes, but you can use any kind you like.
- Baking Soda
- Saline Solution. The up & up or equate brands are both great for slime making.
- Small foam balls. These are often sold as slime balls and you can find them in craft stores or on Amazon.
- 1/2 cup measure
- 1/4 tsp measure
- 1 tbsp measure
Note: I used a clear colored glue for this, and since it’s mixed with water to create the right consistency, a bright pink glue becomes a pastel pink slime. You can also use the opaque colored glues or even the metallic ones for a really fun effect!
Start by putting 1/2 cup of glue into your bowl. Then add 1/2 cup of water and stir thoroughly until it’s completely mixed. Now add in 1/4 tsp of baking soda. This adds some firmness to your slime, and makes the end result really comfortable to handle. Mix this in until it’s completely dissolved.
Now is where you add in your foam balls. I started with about a cup of foam balls, and added more and kept mixing until there was enough. You can use more or less depending on the final result you’re going for. Now here’s where the floam comes together. Add 1 tbsp of saline solution into the mixture and start stirring. You’ll see the floam starting to form into a solid and pull away from the sides of the bowl.
Keep mixing until it’s difficult to mix with the spatula, and then start kneading it with your hands. If you find it still feel sticky, add a few drops of saline solution to your hands and keep kneading. Only add a little bit at a time. If you add too much, the slime will become stiff and break apart. Eventually the mixture won’t feel sticky, but will have that perfect slime consistency.
And you’re all done! I hope you find this Easy Floam Slime Tutorial helpful in making your own floam at home! Make sure to store it in an airtight container when you’re not playing with it!
