Now add about a 1/2 cup of shaving cream. Mix well.

It should be quite soupy right now, add the contact solution.  Mix well, As you are mixing the contact solution in your slime should become thicker and more slime like.

You can adjust contact solution and shaving cream to get the consistency that you want.

Floam How To:

Take your warm water and dissolve the borax in it in a separate bowl.

Pour about 2 oz of Elmers glue into a zip lock bag and add the food coloring of your choice.  I mixed mine in a cup first but you can just mix it in the bag its less of a mess that way.

Add the water and borax mixture to the ziploc bag, close, and mix by massaging it with your hands.

Once that is well combined it should look like a slime, and you are all set to add in your styrofoam beads.

To get styrofoam beads I just broke down a piece of styrofoam from a packing box and it worked really well.  See pictures below for finished Floam!

These can be kept for a long time if you store them in an airtight container.
