Got your pumpkin all carved but it needs a little something. Humm, how about an oozing pumpkin with neon green, or pink or even purple slim bubbling out of its mouth. Green goo sliding out of you pumpkin’s mouth for Halloween trick-or-treaters is so easy! The simplest way uses house hold ingredients that are safe and non- toxic.
Couple quick tips to make the Pumpkin Ooze more visible.
- Carve a large mouth
- Carve the mouth high on the pumpkin–top of the mouth around the middle of the pumpkin so the oozing pumpkin is highly visible.
- Clean out the pumpkin guts as much as possible. The slimy guts slow down the catalytic reactions.
- Place on a non-damageable surface–glass table top, outside side walk.
