Step 1: Make the Slime Activator

Mix together 1 cup of water with 1 teaspoon of borax until it's all dissolved. Set it aside.

Step 2: Mix Glue and Paint

Add roughly 1 cup of clear glue into a bowl. Then add 1-3 tablespoons of the gold paint.

I recommend starting with 1 tablespoon and then adding more until you get the amount of color you'd like.

Step 3: Add the Activator

Add in the slime activator a little bit at a time.

Because you're using clear glue you won't need to use a lot of activator. Therefore make sure you're adding very little at a time (think 1 teaspoon or less). You can always add more, but if you add too much then it can get too hard.

Step 4: Stretch

When the slime starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl, you can stretch it with your hands. Stretch and mix it until it becomes nice and smooth.

Then your metallic gold slime is ready to use!
