One concoction calls for 1 1/2 cups of flour, 1 cup of cornstarch and 1 1/2 cups of water. Combine the cornstarch, 3/4 cup of water and food coloring in a saucepan, then warm the mixture over low heat. Stir in small measures of flour until the full amount has been added. Pour in the remaining water, stir and let the slime cool before touching it.

Another variation of slime without glue which results in a different texture calls for 2 1/4 cups of cornstarch, 1/2 cup of clear, scented shampoo and 6 tablespoons of water. Food coloring or liquid watercolor should be blended into the shampoo before adding it to the cornstarch, if colored slime is desired. Pour the mixture into the cornstarch, and stir until crumbly bits form. Add water by tablespoons until the dough is desirably gooey. For especially slimy slime, mix 6 teaspoons of psyllium fiber powder, such as Metamucil, with 3 cups of water and a few drops of food coloring. Cook and stir over medium-high heat for 3 to 5 minutes. Cool before handling.
