Everyone is making and playing with Slime. This project shows you how to make a container to store Slime in or give as a gift. Our acrylic globes make a great storage container for Slime. The outside surface of the acrylic globes allows you to use your creativity to make a one of a kind container. Below is a list of the products used to make the two featured Slime Keepers. Globe One is covered with colored tissue paper creating a mosaic look. Globe Two is uniquely cover with original art using oil based markers making the art permanent.
- Acrylic Globe
- Sax True Flow Multi Media Varnish, Gloss
- Kolorfast Tissue Assortment
- Assorted Brushes, scissors and ribbon
Separate globe creating two halves. Cut tissue into small squares. Attach to clean outer globe surface using STF Multi Media Varnish. Always use a dry brush. Do not use water until clean up. When applying the squares make sure not to cover the globes seam or hanger tabs. Once completely covered allow to dry and cover with a second coat of STF Multi Media Varnish using a dry brush to apply. Ribbons can be attached to the globe hanger tab if desired.

- Sharpie Oil Based Markers, Fashion Set
- Ribbon and charms
Draw your idea for an all over design on paper to determine how it will fit on the globe. Keep in mind how the design will fit onto the two halves. Separate the globe into two halves. Using the oil based markers draw you design onto each half of the globe. Allow to dry. You can attach decorative ribbon and charms if desired.
Directions for Slime – I used the Elmer’s Basic Slime recipe substituting School Smart White Glue for the Elmer’s glue.
