Create some patriotic slime with red, white and blue clay stars mixed in. All the kids will love playing with it while waiting to see fireworks.
I have recently gotten into making slimes and wanted to be able to combine my love of polymer clay with my new found love of slime. I was brainstorming for a patriotic craft idea and I thought about what can I do with my mini star cutter and that’s when the lightbulb went off.
What you need:
- 5 oz. clear glue
- baking soda
- warm water
- glitter (optional in red white and blue)
- contact solution
- Polymer clay in red, white and blue (I used Sculpey III)
- Premo! Sculpey Mini Metal Cutters: basic shapes
- plastic spoon
Start with equal parts of red, white and blue clay.
Pix the clay till you have a nice marble look. Don’t over-mix, or you will just have purple clay.
Flatten your clay. I used a clay machine at setting #1. Use your star cutter to cut out some stars. For easy cut out removal, I like to dip my cutter in corn starch before use. Bake all your stars at 265 for 15 minutes.
Dissolve 1/2 teaspoon in 1/2 cup warm water and set aside.
Pour the entire 5 oz. bottle of clear glue into a medium sized bowl. Try to get all the glue out.
When the water is room temperature pour it into your bowl with the glue. Mix the water and glue together with a plastic spoon.
Add your choice of glitters and mix well.
Slowly add contact solution by adding a little at a time then mixing. I added a total of 3 1/2 teaspoons to my mix. if you add too little, it will be too sticky and too much makes the mixture rubbery.
Take your mixture out of the bowl and knead it a little. Place your stars on top of the slime.
Fold and mix your stars into the slime. Store in a plastic container or bag. I put mine in 2 oz. plastic containers and the slime mixture filled up 6 of these.
