The Sci Guys: Science at Home - Glow in the Dark Borax Slime
Welcome to science at home in this experiment we will be making glow in the dark borax slime. To make the slime glow you need acrylic glow in the dark paint either from a craft store or a paint store. The paint in our slime uses phosphorescence to glow after about 15 minutes of charging under a light. The borax in our recipe attaches the glue molecules together to create a polymer. Glow in the dark slime is great for Halloween. At the end of this episode you will know how to make glow in the dark borax slime, explain why the slime glows and what luminescence is.
