HOW TO MAKE NO FAIL SLIME

Slime is easy to make, but it’s important that you read the directions, use the correct ingredients, measure accurately, and have a little patience if you don’t succeed the first time. Remember, it’s a recipe just like baking!

The biggest reason for slime fails is not reading through the recipe! People contact me all the time with: “Why didn’t this work?”

Most of the time the answer has been lack of attention to supplies needed, reading the recipe, and actually measuring the ingredients! So give it a try and do let me know if you need some help. On a very rare occasion I have gotten an old batch of glue, and there is no fixing that!

METALLIC SLIME RECIPE

Liquid starch is found in the laundry aisle of the supermarket or in craft stores and is the slime activator for this gold and silver slime. You should keep in mind that sodium borate is the main ingredient that forms the slime. However, this slime is not borax free.

SUPPLIES:

  • Clear PVA Washable School Glue
  • 1 oz Bottle Gold Glue and Silver Glue {cheap dollar store bottles}
  • Gold and Silver Glitter
  • Liquid Starch
  • Water
  • Bowl, Spoon, Measuring Cup
  • Storage Container with Lid

STEP 1: Squeeze the small bottle of gold or silver glue into a 1/2 cup measure. Fill the measuring cup the rest of the way with your clear glue. Transfer to bowl.

STEP 2: Add 1/2 cup of water to the glue and stir to combine.

STEP 3: Add extra glitter as desired.

Most importantly, be generous with the glitter! You really want this metallic slime to shine!

STEP 4: Add 1/2 cup of liquid starch to the mixture. Stir until slime forms.

STEP 5: Remove slime from the bowl and knead with hands until smooth. Place in clean, dry container to store.

Slime always likes to be kneaded well! If you want to achieve the smooth shiny consistency that you see, play with your slime!

Slime can stay fresh for several weeks. Remember to wash hands and surfaces after playing with slime.

TWIST YOUR GOLD AND SILVER SLIME RECIPES TOGETHER!

We made two batches of this slime recipe, one gold and one silver. If you twist each one into a long snake, place them next to each other and pick them up, you will have a metallic swirl of gold and silver slimes. Keep in mind that the slimes colors will eventually mix but will still be gorgeously glittering.

Slime is always fun to make and play with no matter what time of the year! Our super easy slime recipes are perfect for exploring all types of slimes.
