My wife is an Early Childhood Educator. For art projects, it is common for her to mix Tempera paints with Elmer’s glue for colored glues. (Of course, now you can buy it, but you can make it yourself.) Anyhow, this time she mixed the paint with an unmarked white glue. Before she knew it, she had created “The Blob”! The mixture started “erupting” in slow motion doubling in volume and overflowing the container. A vinegar-like smell was noted. It is obvious the increase in volume was caused by the escaping gas.
It is suspected the glue was actually a decoupe glue. Does anyone know what happened here? - Jinx
