Introduction: Glitter Slime

About: I am a teacher outside of Boston and I love making cool stuff! Any prizes I'm lucky enough to win will go directly to my classroom (when appropriate) where I teach 6-12th grade English, Social Studies, and S...

I've been trying to track down a large amount of clear glue for a while, the craft stores I usually frequent can't seem to keep the 1 gallon jugs in stock so I had to make due with the smaller bottles. Clear glue is a bit different from the white glue so more experimenting was needed.

Step 1: BoM

Clear glue

Borax

Warm water

Glitter

Craft sticks

Step 2: Glue

Mix 4oz of clear glue with 1/4 cup of warm water. Stir well.

Some slime recipes call for using pre-made clear glitter glue, this seems like a more expensive way to go when it's easy enough to make your own.

Step 3: Glitter

Add glitter to glue mixture and stir well again. We added about 1 tbs of glitter. You can add more or less, it's completely up to you.

Step 4: Borax

Mix 1/2 tsp of Borax with 1/2 cup of warm water and stir well. Keep in mind, you don't need to pour the entire cup of water into the glue. We've found that starting with a small amount and then adding more if it seems like things are too soft or not combining.

Step 5: Mix

Slowly pour Borax water into the glue and stir as much as you can. Then remove the clumpy mixture from your cup and knead with your hands.

    Does this slime stay sticky for a while, and does it keep its form well? Im trying to find a good recipe for a slime/rubber that cam stick to a wall without drooping or sliding.
