Next mix:
1 tsp Borax
1/2 cup warm water
stir until Borax is completely dissolved.  Slowly add the Borax water to the glue mixture {about 4-5 tbsps}.  As you add the Borax the mixture will start to change and become more solid.  Drain excess water and form the material into a silly putty ball.  Voila!
