Our first prototype was too sticky and did not hold form well enough when we added liquid starch to stretch tactic but when we added borax instead of liquid starch we got all the physical properties we were looking for and worked at reducing volume possibly because of the thickness. Our final prototype (S.A.M.) was made with 15 ml of liquid starch 10 ml of glue and two drops of borax. S.A.M. also returned to the base polymer, stretch tactic, over night so we had to add borax every class.
