Tips for Homemade Mermaid Slime:
This homemade mermaid slime is in two parts.
The white glues are for the colored portion of this slime and the clear for the glitter.
If you use glitter in white glue, it will get lost unless you simply sprinkle it on already completed slime. If you actually want to see the glitter, you will need a secondary clear glue for your batch.
Mermaid Fluffy Slime Supplies
Glitter Slime Needs:
- Clear Glue (finding this in a gallon is HARD so you can see if they have it here…if you find it, GET IT! Otherwise you can get smaller bottles)
- Starch – again another one of those items that isn’t always easy to find
- Fine Gold Glitter
Mermaid colors need:
- 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
Mermaid Fluffy Slime Easy Recipe with Liquid Starch
NOTE BEFORE WE GET STARTED ON MAKING SLIME: Slime is a science project. Learning how to make slime is absolutely fun, but its also messy and requires patience. Additionally, in some rare cases, people can be sensitive to the products it takes to make slime so if you find that you have sensitive skin, I advise that you use gloves before playing. Last but not least, please make sure children are supervised and these projects are not meant for children that are of an age that put items in their mouths. Slime cannot be eaten.
- You will first need to make all your colors in separate bowls.
- For the four listed here, you need four bowls and four spoons available.
Gold Glitter Slime DIY: To make the gold glitter slime for your mermaid fluffy slime, you will need to do the same thing you always do when you make slime recipes– mix your glue and your starch. If you are used to making slime in general, this is pretty easy for you but when it comes to clear glue, it typically needs double the amount of starch to cling together. Clear glue is VERY STICKY!! I am not giving exact measurements because it mostly depends on how much slime you want to make.
That being said, we typically pour in about a cup of glue, then add your glitter (if you add any colors, in this case we didn’t but in other slimes like the Unicorn Poop Clear Slime Recipe we did), and then up to 1 cup of starch when it comes to clear glue.
I would highly recommend adding only about 1/4th cup at a time till your slime stops being sticky. When working with clear slime, patience is your friend. The more you play, the better it gets. You will know that its the perfect amount when you can peel it off your hands.
Mix with a spoon until it starts to form, then pull out and knead. This type of slime is very fast flowing so it will take some time to make sure you get the right consistency. Put to the side.
Pink, Purple, and Sea Green DIY Slime Recipe
To get going on the rest of your slime, you need to start with glue. Pour approx 2 cups of white 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 and colors being combined too soon.
Spray in about 1 cup of white foamed shaving cream (you can do 2 if you really want but if you over shaving cream and under glue, the slime will harden up) and mix the glue and shaving cream together. If you are interested in making more slime like this, check out our fluffy slime tutorial here.
Add a few drops of your coloring and stir. Make sure you have the right colors before moving onto starch. 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.
