Silly Putty This recipe calls for TWO (that’s IT) ingredients. I love that! You will need: white, multi purpose glue (I used Elmer’s – 1 cup) liquid starch (I used Sta-Flo – 1/2 cup) optional: food coloring *You can make more/less putty than we did – just stick to a “2 parts glue, 1 part starch” combo to achieve optimal putty.
Here is the recipe: 1. Take a small mixing bowl and add 2 Tablespoons of Warm Water. Then add 2 Tablespoons of White Elmer’s School Glue (other glues might not work as well) and a drop or two of food coloring. Mix together thoroughly. 2. Sprinkle in 1 and 3/4 to 2 Tablespoons of Borax into your glue mixture while stirring constantly. Your mixture will thicken up quickly. When the borax is all added, gather the mixture into a ball and knead together for a few minutes till firm. That’s it!
