Steps

  • Step 1
    Cut off the bottom half of a plastic water bottle, about 4" down from the cap. Save the top half, including the cap, and recycle the bottom half.
  • Step 2
    Use a sharpie to draw eyes, a nose and a large mouth.
  • Step 3
    Using scissors or a craft knife, cut out the mouth hole.
  • Step 4
    Use about 2 oz. of Model Magic for each head. Save 1/3 for the eyes, nose and ears. Stretch out the remainder into a flat pancake and wrap it around the bottle, being careful not to cover the mouth or top opening.
  • Step 5
    Form lips around the mouth opening.
  • Step 6
    Add extra Model Magic around the bottle cap to form a base, so the head can stand on its own.
  • Step 7
    Attach ears, eyes and a nose. Allow head to dry for about 3 days before painting.
  • Step 8
    Paint the head with Americana Gloss Enamels to seal it.
  • Step 9
    Create slime by following this recipe.
    Ingredients:
    4 oz. (1/2 cup) glue
    Borax

    Acrylic Paints or Dyes

    Steps:
    In a bowl or measuring cup, mix glue with 1/2 cup water. Add your choice of acrylic paint or dye and stir.
