Make Glitter Slime Without Glitter Glue
Now every time people make glitter slime they typically do it with glitter glue. It is convenient to create glitter slime this way as the glitter is typically pre-mixed into clear glues and can easily come out the colors you want. This can make for some fun slimes like this Pot O Gold Slime here.
But what happens when you want to do a color other than pink, blue or purple? I personally love these chromatic fine grain glitters but they do not come in pre-made glue options.
You do not have to fret!
You can still easily mix metallic glitter with your own clear glues OR add to pre-made starch glues to customize and play with glitter stripes right on your slime.
Simply shake onto pre-made slime and then play. As the glitter disperses inside your slime, you can add more and more to play again and again!
How to Make Glitter Slime
Making slime with LIQUID STARCH and glue is a ton easier than mixing borax to do it. Simply use about 1/3rd cup starch in 1/2 cup glue (you can stir in some food coloring or paint to color before you add) and then add starch little by little until you get the slime consistency you want. We use red solo cups to do this and once its mostly sticky, we pull out of the cup and start to mix with our hands. If the slime is still sticky, that means it needs more liquid starch. Just add little by little until you get the consistency you need. Depending on how much glue we pour, it usually tends to be about a half a cup overall.
It can be pretty hard to find liquid starch so make sure you grab some next time you see it as well as a huge thing of glue so you can make tons of slime for all occasions. Buying this way is a lot more cost effective and once you start making slime, you will def want to have glue on hand!
