Rainbow Fluffy Slime DIY Homemade Recipe with Shaving Cream
First things first! To get started on making homemade rainbow fluffy slime (or any tutorial on how to make slime), 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 rainbow fluffy slime is made with liquid starch and never borax. If you prefer to use an alternative, you can test out this saline solution slime here.

- 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 also be impossible to find, so I always grab a bottle when I order glue
- Shaving Cream
- Food coloring – I use Wilton’s Color Right for the best and brightest results
- To turn this into a rainbow explosion, you will also need to add nonpareils.
How to make Rainbow Fluffy Slime without Borax
Now let’s make your rainbow fluffy slime! Fluffy slime is actually (in my opinion) the easiest slime you can make. Because of the shaving cream, its almost a no fail- it has little to no stick making this one that doesn’t immediately make you want to wash your hands. The first thing you need to do is start with glue.
When it comes to fluffy slime, just use regular white glue. White glue is less sticky than clear glue and honestly the shaving cream will turn your clear white anyhow.
To get going, you need to start with glue.
Pour approx 2 cups of glue into a bowl. You do not need to measure this…just wing it. As much glue as you pour is about as much slime as you will get returned. If you want a lot of slime like in this recipe and multiple colors, I suggest you make a few small batches and then combine versus over pouring.
This prevents mixing issues with your slime and colors being combined too soon.
Add a few drops of your coloring and stir. You can make this any color you want so feel free to get creative. To make the slime as shown in this article, you will need 3-4 separate batches of colored slime to mix.
Once your slime is colored, its time to add the liquid starch. Spray starch is not the same thing, please use liquid. Pour in approx 2-3 tablespoons full of starch and stir. The glue will start to form immediately. Stir for a few minutes to get it all mixed up and then take out the goop and begin kneading between your hands, passing back and forth.

Here is the tip to make non sticking slime:
If the slime is sticking to your fingers, it doesn’t have enough starch. Either dip your slime back into the bowl and mix more starch (if there is some left in there) or pour a little bit more into the glue mixture little by little till it starts un-sticking.
The entire process can take up to 5 minutes. Its easier to add more starch than add more glue, so its better to start with less starch and add. The reason there are no hard measurements is because most people make varying sizes of slime batches, so you will need to find the exact ratio. I promise this is very easy.

Create Striped Slime
Rainbows are so fun because you can combine the colors! Remember that with play, multi-color slime will eventually fade to one dominate color, but you can continue to twist and play. I love seeing what kind of stripes I can make!
