extra large tie-dye slime

Are you going to make us say it’s groovy? This tie-dye slime is awfully fun, both to mix up and to look at. Read below and we’ll show you how to combine four bright colors into one enormous (and, yes, super-groovy) swirl.
Step 1
Project Notes:
- All types of Elmer’s® glue work with this recipe; however, for the featured slimes, we used:
    - Four 4 fl. oz. bottles of white glue.
- Protect your work surface with wax (or palette) paper and wear an apron (or other protective garment) to protect clothing, as the food coloring may stain.
 
First, find your favorite glue slime recipe. Add color to each slime according to your recipe’s instructions.
 
TIP: Elmer’s® has some great recipes; click here to download.  
Step 2
This slime has four colored sections: red; yellow; green and blue. First, use one 4 fl. oz. bottle of white glue to make a batch of red slime, according to your recipe’s instructions. To get the color shown, add No-Taste Red food coloring according to your recipe’s instructions.
 
TIP: Dip a craft stick into the food coloring container, then mix the color into the glue, stirring thoroughly until it’s completely blended. Always use a new, clean craft stick when dipping into your food coloring in order to avoid cross-contamination. 
Step 3
To make yellow slime, use a new 4 fl. oz. bottle of white glue. To get the color shown, add Lemon Yellow food coloring according to your recipe’s instructions. 
Step 4
To make green slime, use one 4 fl. oz. bottle of white glue. To get the color shown, add Kelly Green food coloring according to your recipe’s instructions. 
Step 5
To make blue slime, use your final 4 fl. oz. bottle of white glue. To get the color shown, add Royal Blue food coloring according to your recipe’s instructions. 
Step 6
Once your colorful slimes are complete, form each slime into a ball and tuck all four balls next to each other, to make one very large pile of slime. 
Step 7
With fingers and thumb, grab the slime at its center point, where all four colors meet, and turn it clockwise, as if you were turning a dial. This will begin to create a colorful spiral at the center of the slime. Continue to twist, fold and stretch your giant slime until you’ve mixed the colors just the way you like. 
Step 8
Be sure to store your slime in an airtight, sealable container (or re-sealable plastic bag).
