How to make Glitter Slime! Using ingredients available in the UK. The same recipe works with US ingredients too, measurements for both are listed.
You will need
2 x Bowls – Cup, teaspoon & tablespoon measurements – 120ml or more non-pva glitter glue – Clear PVA glue (school glue) – Jug of warm water – Kershaws’ Laundry Starch (liquid starch US) – Glitter and Food colouring (optional) – A cup of tea (optional)
Step 1 – Add 1/2 Cup of warm water into one of your bowls
Step 2 – Fill 1/2 cup measure with glitter glue (approx 120ml)
Step 3 – Layer the top of the glitter with clear PVA, about 5 lines up and down the surface will do it. The more PVA you add the thicker and more rubbery your slime will be. (For US ingredients fill approx 2/3 with glitter glue and 1/3 with clear school glue) Pour this mixture into the bowl of water.
Step 4 – Mix the laundry starch powder with water. You need approx 3 teaspoons to 1 tablespoon but add until the consistency is similar to single cream. (For US liquid starch skip this step)
Step 5 – Add 1/4 cup of starch solution to your empty bowl (1/2 cup for US liquid starch)
Step 6 – Mix your glitter glue, clear glue, water mixture all together until it forms a lovely smooth paste of glossy glittery lovliness.
Step 7 – Carefully pour your glitter mixture into the bowl with the starch and slowly mix with your hand. I swirl it around gently and allow it to pick up the starch on it’s way around. As soon as you feel it start to gloop together, scoop it up and start squeezing it together in your hands. If after 30 seconds or so it is still very loose then pick up some more starch with a hand and carry on squeezing and stretching. Your slime with thicken up as you work with it over the bowl.
Step 8 – Once you have the consistency of slime you desire after working on it for a few minutes you can get on with enhancing the colour using glitter and food colouring. Just sprinkle some on and fold it in. Add some food colouring and work it through. Not too much though, it can go loose and mushy!
