DIY: Glitter Slime Tutorial
By hahonline, Aug 4 2018 01:57PM
Slime is the latest craze, the new POG's if you like (showing my age a little there).
Kids of all ages are going crazy for this sticky, sensory delight
It really is super easy to make with just few simple ingredients. You can follow our step by step instructions below or check out our Instagram archive for the video version.
We’ve chosen to make a transparent glittery slime but it’s totally customisable. You can add different colour paint, glitter and even beads - the possibilities’ really are endless.
You can by Elmer's Magical Liquid from Hobbycraft or Amazon. We used Brian Clegg clear glue, Contact lens soluation from Morrisons and these glitter sachets (as you only need a small amount per slime portion).
3.Once you've added all your ingredients you will need to mix your solution thoroughly.
Top tip: If you find your solution is still too runny, add a little more glue.
Now you are ready to add your desired colouring and effects. I'm using pink glitter and tiny pink heart sequins.
5. You'll need to give your solution another good mix.
...and there you go. It really is that easy and this will keep the kids amused for hours (well, a few minutes at least).
