Ok where do i start, ok,how i made the slime:
2tsp Metamucil
2 cups water

put both in jar with lid, shake for 1min, poor into microwave safe bowl big enough for the mix to bubble slightly. Microwave on high for 5min but keep an eye on it, once the bubbles are almost overflowing turn off microwave. Repeat 3-4 times, at about the 3rd time take a spoonfull out and let it cool (do it faster by laying the spoon in the freezer, check it for texture, should be goopy, if its runny put the mix on for 5more min.

ok onto the PP and such,

ss: 1/100
iso: 1600 (set it wrong by mistake)

Did neatimage that helped the noise.
PP was quite extensive:
made 3 layers:
1 for the hands 1 for the arms and one for the rest
hand i sharpened, arms i Gaus.blured to 5 and the rest was Gaus Blurred to 8 or 9.
Changed the goop color from orange to green (didn't have food coloring while making it)
Dodged background to make it whiter, dodged shadows too.
Merged layers and duplicated, 2nd layer i set to Lighten
Did a few minor things (cant remember, mostly B&C and curves)
Resized and saved for web.

So ya, dont know how well this will do but it was one of the more fun pictures ive shot.

Interesting. Might have used a wider angle lens to add a little distortion, or lit the face less.
