DIY Fluffy Slime Ingredients

To get started, you still need the traditional slime ingredients. For us, that is a Gallon of Elmer’s Glue, Liquid Starch, a colorant (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.

  • White school glue – 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.

Noisy Slime Recipe

Why call it noisy slime? Because this is the perfect poking slime recipe! Fluffy slime is so fun for ASMR slime noises.

As I have explained in other slime recipes, making slime isn’t an exact science, but understanding the basics can get you on the road of a good base and you can adjust it easily to make your perfect slime. When making fluffy slime, you absolutely want a LOT of glue. I suggested getting the gallon glue and I mean it.

I start with about 2 cups of glue per color so its nice and thick. Then add your colorant. The Wilton’s colorant makes it super bright and after testing hoards of food dyes, while it cost more than some, I have found it works the best.

Now spray in about a 1 cup worth of cheap shaving cream.

Do not use the gel kind, just the good old fashioned dollar poof shaving cream. Mix these three items together. You will notice your glue puff up like puffy paint. Incidentally, this is how you make puff paint for other art projects. But you are not done yet!

Now add your liquid starch.

I wing this part, but I would start with about 1/4th-1/3rd cup and stir together. The slime will form almost immediately. Then you can take out and knead. Dip back in starch if its not hard enough.

Do this for every color! Done!

DIY Flubber Slime Stays

The consistency of this slime is so much fun because its more of a flubber.

It’s easily moldable and while still flows like a slow slime, leaves impressions and can even be cut with scissors!
