Slime without Borax
PRO TIP: Many people do not like to deal with borax and water when making slime. You can also make slime by using LIQUID STARCH and glue. It’s a ton easier. Simply use about 1/3rd cup starch in 1/2 cup glue (per color) and add starch little by little until you get the slime consistency you want. Once it’s set, then separate the white slime and dye the colors you want in solo cups.
It can be pretty hard to find liquid starch, so pick this one up here (it’s the one I use) 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!
Star Spangled Slime
- 5oz of white school glue
- liquid starch
- Food coloring (pink, blue, green & yellow)
- Cups and craft sticks for mixing
Pour glue into a cup (red solo cups work great for this), add the tbsp. of water, food coloring and glitter and mix well with the craft stick.
Add liquid starch. approx 1/4 cup or less.
Keep stirring and it will start to form. Then take out of the cup and begin kneading.
If the slime is too sticky, add a little bit of starch at a time (about 1 tsp or less)
Store in sealed container
Repeat 3 more times to make each of the colors. Braid colors together when finished.
How to Make Slime Video
I have a lot of people message me about this and other slime projects, wondering why their slime is so runny compared to mine. I did a live Facebook video that shows you the stages of slime from the goop to the solid mass above you see, so you can make sure you are on the right track. I also address some of the slime issues! Please watch because it will help you grow some confidence and make sure you get it right! Once you have it figured out, making rainbow slime becomes so much easier.
