I gotta figure out how to make this stuff – it’s apparently just cornstarch & water.

    I’m not sure what the stuff is sitting on that is making it pop up and dance around but it does look like cornstarch and water. Cornstarch exhibits a property call dilatency which means it “shear thickens” It other words, it’s runny when it just sits there but when you apply pressure with your hands, fingers, etc, it gets thicker. I believe it’s a solution of half cornstarch and half water. Just try 1 cup of cornstarch and 1 cup of water.

    I found a lot more about it after Googling. It’s apparently a Seussian word!
