Ghost mud was the perfect thing to make today, on this last day of October, to celebrate Hallowe’en. I first read about ghost mud over at Teacher Tom’s.
Grate a bar of Ivory soap and add it to about 1 cup of hot water. Stir it around a few times until it’s melty and mushy.
Once your t.p. has been shredded, pour the soapy water into the basin and start mushing and mashing everything all together with your hands. It feels good, and smells great, and you wind up with this awesome slippery, silky, moldable “dough”.
I’m not sure if ours turned out exactly as it should have. I’ve heard others say it should have the consistency of cool whip. I don’t believe ours ever did. It was pulpier than that, but maybe we didn’t rip our t.p. enough. You know what though? It totally didn’t matter.
