Step 2: In a separate bowl pour out the entire container of glue (7.625 oz bottle). If needed, cut the top of the glue bottle off with an Xacto knife, and scoop the remaining glue out with a spatula.  Add the food coloring, mix it up till you get the desired color. (You can add a tsp or two of water to the glue to make it more flexible)
