This putty is really stretchy and great fun to play with.

Glue and Detergent Putty

  1. Add white glue to a plastic cup. Empty a full container of Elmer's glue or other white glue. Use a large, plastic cup, not a glass or ceramic container.
  2. Add liquid laundry detergent. Fill the now-empty container of glue with liquid laundry detergent. Leave a little space at the top — you want a little less detergent than glue. Pour the detergent into the same cup.
  3. Stir until firm. Mix all the ingredients together and the product should start to clump up. After about five minutes of stirring, it should be quite hard.
  4. Knead warm water into the putty. Pour warm water into the cup and rinse out any extra detergent. Knead in more warm water, squeezing as hard as you can until it forms a putty-like substance. Make sure there are no more clumps of wet, runny glue or air bubbles. You're all finished.

Glue and Borax Putty

  1. Stir borax powder into water. Spoon 1 tbsp (15 mL) borax into 1½ cups water. Stir until it dissolves, using a popsicle stick.
  2. Slowly stir in glue. Take the cap off the glue and start pouring in glue in a thin stream. With your other hand, keep stirring the water in a circular pattern, using the popsicle stick.
  3. Knead the putty once formed. The glue should clump around the popsicle stick. Remove it once it starts looking like putty and knead it to finish the process. If it sticks to your hand or feels runny, dunk it back in the water and stir some more.

Cornflour and Custard Powder Putty

  1. Boil water. Boil 100ml (7 tbsp) water.
  2. Mix together cornflour, custard powder, and olive oil. In a separate bowl, stir together 100g (¾ cup) cornflour, 30 mL (2 tbsp) custard powder, and 75 mL (5 tbsp) olive oil. The olive oil helps the putty stay together, but you can skip it if you don't have any.
    • In the US and some other regions, cornflour is sold as corn starch. Do not use actual flour made from corn.
  3. Stir in food colouring (optional). A few drops should do it, in whichever colour you like.
  4. Mix in water and white wine vinegar. Pour the boiling water into the mixture, along with a drop of white wine vinegar.
  5. Spoon onto a foil-lined tray. Lay out some tin foil in a tray, making sure it goes over the edges. This minimises the risk of spillage. Slowly spoon the mixture onto the foil. Let it spread out by itself.
  6. Refrigerate overnight. When you take it out, it should be set and done. Just peel off the foil and mould it into whatever shape you want!


  • Stir using a popsicle stick, or another utensil you can throw away instead of washing.
  • Rub a little detergent on your hands to stop them from sticking, if making the detergent putty.
  • Use a mild, liquid laundry detergent to avoid irritating your hands.
  • Use glitter glue for cooler effects.
  • Throw the putty away after a few days, before mold or microbes grow.
  • To make your slime last longer, store it in a plastic baggie or an airtight container in the refrigerator.
