- Empty the white glue into a seperate bowl.

- When the slime is not too sticky, take it out of the bowl and start kneading with your hands.
- Keep kneading and adding more mixture as required.

An important tip for the slime is that after getting the perfect consistency of the slime, begin by slowly adding in the confetti. If you mix too much confetti to the slime, it will be full of crinkly confetti. Therefore, there will not be as much slime to squeeze and play around with. It is essential to keep in mind the balance of slime and metallic confetti in order to not spoil the slime.
How To Store?
The slime can be stored in an airtight container to block its reaction with air. Putting it in an airtight container will keep the slime from drying out, making it last several days. You can store the container in the fridge also. The slime will last as long as a month in a refrigerator without drying out.
