Slime is one of the coolest chemistry experiments out there, and all you need are a few things from the grocery store to make this make clear glue glitter slime. You don’t have to use just white glue, you can use clear glue too! Check out our glittery slime recipe that shines and sparkles, and you will have a cool science activity too.

MAKE CLEAR GLUE GLITTER SLIME RECIPE

Learn how to make clear glue glitter slime with our simple slime recipe. Making slime is a great science experiment and sensory play activity. Learn how to make clear glue slime with glitter!

We love our traditional liquid starch slime recipe with both clear glue and white glue. It works great either way and there are so many fun ways to dress up slime, see how we do that here. Some times we feel like making a glittering slime and some times we feel like making an opaque oozing slime.

We have used clear glue to make cool slimes like our oozing eye ball slime for Halloween party favors, or our pumpkin guts slime made inside a real pumpkin, gorgeous ocean slime , and rainbow slime!

SUPPLIES

Elmer’s Washable Clear Glue

Liquid Starch

Glitter

Water

Container, Measuring Cup, and Spoon



MAKE CLEAR GLUE GLITTER SLIME

Add 1/2 cup of glue to a container

Add 1/2 cup of water and mix.

At this time you can add your glitter. Be generous! You can also add food coloring. Stir everything together again.

Add 1/2 cup of liquid starch to your glue and glitter mixture. What’s really cool is that it is an immediate reaction.

SLIME SCIENCE

What’s the science behind the slime? The sodium borate in the starch {or borax powder or boric acid} mixes with the PVA {polyvinyl-acetate} glue and forms this cool stretchy substance. This is called cross linking! Slime is also considered a polymer. I have created a simple slime science resource here as well.

 

Your slime will start to come together immediately. Keep stirring until it’s too thick to stir with the spoon and switch to using your hands! Pretty cool science if you ask me.

Now you have thick and stretchy, clear glue glitter slime ready for examining. I find that clear glue produces a firmer, thicker slime but still oozes and stretches, but you need to be a bit gentler with it.

White glue makes a looser slime that flows more freely. Unless of course you want to try out our flubber recipe which is a super cool, strong, and stretchy slime made with white glue.

 

 

Our recipe has been a no fail recipe for making slime for the last few years. We love this cool chemistry activity and hope you will too. Make sure to check out more of our awesome science and STEM projects for kids of all ages!

I always thought making slime was a mystical experience saved for Pinterest, but I was wrong! If you have put off trying to make slime, don’t. You will be surprised at how easy making slime really is. Our slime recipes prove it!

  1. Are you certain that this uses polyvinyl acetate? I think Elmers Glue is probably polyvinyl alcohol as it is washable while the acetate isn’t.

  2. I can’t buy Elmer’s, Glue cuz I live in Vietnam. It’s so expensive to pay for freight rate 🙁 Can I use anything instead of Elmer’s Glue?
