What makes Blu Tack less sticky?

It's made up of very small molecules and, over time, seeps into microscopic indents in the surface of materials. The electrostatic interaction gradually gives way to that molecular 'seeping'. Hence Blu-tack doesn't feel sticky initially, but gets stickier if you handle it long enough.

Do you make slime not sticky?

If it's still sticky, add another 1/8 teaspoon of baking soda and knead it again. You can also try adding 1 teaspoon of baby oil to the slime, which will make it less sticky and add some shine. Or, if you have some contact solution on hand, you can add 1 teaspoon of it to the slime so it's not as sticky.
