At 23, Karina Garcia has built an empire — by making slime. The young mogul started her vlogging career sharing various DIY projects, but then inspiration struck one day when she saw a slime recipe on Pinterest. By mixing in her own ingredients and colors (and making her recipes safe), she’s amassed a huge following on YouTube, with more than 6 million subscribers. Some of her videos have been watched 20 million times.
On Tuesday, Garcia stopped by The Morning Breath and taught Claudia and Jackie Oshry how to make slime with her new Craft City DIY Slime Kit.
