The past week or so I have been sharing fluffy slime recipes. If you are not familiar with fluffy slime, its made with your standard slime ingredients and a shaving cream additive, which makes it big, squishy, and fluffy. But what happens when you mix fluffy slime and regular sticky slime? Well, with all the recipes laying around, I tried just that and was pleasantly surprised with the different densities of each time of slime, it made for some awesome results.
The sticky slime easily folds in the middle of the puffy slime and with some twisting and playing, creates long pretty stripes, even on the inside. My head is spinning on how we can make a few different looks based on the mixing up of slime recipes but to get you started on your own, here is what you need to do.
First, you need to create fluffy slime AND regular slime. Let’s get started!

Fluffy Slime Ingredients
Starting off, you still need the traditional slime ingredients. For us, that is a Gallon of Elmer’s Glue, Liquid Starch, a colorant if you want it to have color (I prefer Wilton’s Food Coloring) and for this, the additive that makes fluffy slime work, extra moisturizing shaving cream. Here is a list of items you will need for your fluffy slime recipe. This fluffy slime is made with liquid starch. I have found that its EASY to reproduce whereas slime with borax as the thickening agent can go badly quickly and leave you with a hard rock of slime. Do not wonder what went wrong- just use liquid starch. If you prefer to use saline solution, try this kid friendly slime recipe here.
- I USED CLEAR GLUE BUT you can use white if you want since the shaving cream turns it white anyway. – I always use GALLON SIZED GLUE. Tiny bottles do not produce a lot of slime and this is an addicting project. Go ahead and get the gallon size. You cannot find this in stores.
- Liquid Starch – This can be impossible to find, so also better to grab online
- Food coloring – I use Wilton’s Color Right for the best and brightest results if you prefer this to have color instead of white
REGULAR SLIME INGREDIENTS
Create your regular slime
- Approximately 1 1/3 Cup Clear Glue
- Approximately 1/3rd cup liquid Starch
- 1 tablespoon shaped glitter
I say approximately because making slime is not an exact science. You can adjust to make it stretchier or thicker. (See below on a video)
For Fluffy Slime, use the same recipe (or white glue) but add about 1 cup of shaving cream. Here is a detailed tutorial on how to make fluffy slime and here is a detailed article on how to make regular slime. You can also see a video of fluffy slime being made on MomDots Facebook page.
How to get hidden Stripes in your slime
Fluffy Slime + Sticky Slime = Awesome
Now spread out your made fluffy slime and add your regular sticky slime in the middle. Roll up together and twist. Now you can tear it or stretch it and the two different slimes will create very beautiful stripes!

Try one of these videos to see how its done. These are not fluffy slime videos but should give you an idea on how to properly knead and mix the glue and starch.
