Liquid Ooze in beaker is crystal clear ooze. It will slip and slide everywhere. You can pour it from its container but it won't short circuit your keyboard.It sticks together but it isn't sticky. What makes liquid ooze work ? Borax in water forms an ion called the borate ion. When the borax solution is added to the glue solution, the borate ions help link the long polymer molecules to each other so they cannot move and flow as easily. Slime is a non-Newtonian liquid, which means that the viscosity, or resistance, of the liquid changes as you apply a stronger force. If you rest your hand on the surface of slime it will sink in, but it you smack it, the surface is solid. Water is a Newtonian liquid and has an unchanging viscosity.
