Glue gun slimes


The glue gun
Surebonder HE-750 Professional High Temp 2 Heater Glue Gun
When it is first warming up - you can get it to make bubbles, once it is fully warmed up - it won't make bubbles

Have to be patient and stack layer on top of layer to get a rise, I chopped up some minis to make the "victims"

So then I had the great idea that I wanted the slime greener  - so I got mini green glue sticks(for my full size glue gun) 

The green glue looked great

So this cool rising slime effect was done by first making a glue puddle, then taking a cut piece of glue stick and gluing it to the middle of the puddle, then dripping hot glue over the cut stick, ended up looking great.   I got the cut sticks in this case when I fixed the glue gun, they were cut out of it..... but sometime the best ideas come from random stuff like that... if I hadn't had to do that I wouldn't have had little nubs of glue sticks, that I otherwise couldn't use.
