That’s how it works:
In the beginning you need to make some mucus. For this, add some detergent and some glue into a bowl and mix well until the mucus is formed. Then knead the mucus with your hands until it becomes firmer, but still work well and remain slimy. Next, you just have to pick up the sand gradually. By constant kneading you soon reach the desired consistency. Now only the color and glitter powder have to be added. Knead once more vigorously. Finished!
