We started with 2 balloons taped together for Slimer’s “bum” and a mickey mouse shapped balloon for the head/torso.
Our paste was 2 c flour 1/4 c salt & 8 c water. wisked over med heat until smooth and bubblrs just break surface- about 3 min.
will keep in fridge 5 days
We gave the ballons 2 layers of paper mache and let dry.
to do this, we used 2″ strips of newsprit submerged in paste removed of excess layered over the balloons
using cardboard and wadded up newspaper taped and then covered in more paste covered strips; we created basic shapes for nose, eyebrows lips etc.
Arms were built using cardboad and toilet paper tubes covered in 1 layer paper/paste.
pop balloons. Attach the 2 halves of the body with tuck tape and added another layer of paper & paste.
added arms and covered w/ 1 layer.
Then covered the wet layer with strips of “slimer green” tissue. painted down using a wide brush dipped in paste.
