By just substituting white glue for the clear glue in the slime recipe, you can make a concoction with a different texture and look.
Equal amounts of Elmer's white glue and Liquid Laundry Starch.
Add food coloring as desired.

This can be used like Silly Putty.
For another recipe, you can use Borax instead of the Liquid Laundry Starch. Make two bowls of mixtures.
1 ½ cups warm water
2 cups Elmer’s Glue
3 tsp. Borax
1 cup Warm Water
Make sure both are mixed well.
Pour mixture 1 into mixture 2. When it is in a glob work it for 2-3 minutes. Initially it feels wet but it eventually dries up to the final product.
Another variation I have seen is to add Glow-In-The-Dark paint.
