The Secret to Pearlized Color Slime
We love making different slime recipes here at Ruffles and Rain Boots. Slime for young kids, older kids, and adults. Some of our slime fun:
- Fluffy Slime – For When You Just Want Something Poofy
- Easy Gitter Slime – No Really, It’s SUPER Easy
- Wine and Slime Party – Because We Should Enjoy This Stuff, Too!
But we’ve never been able to use white glue for bright, pearlized colors. The color never really popped, no matter the coloring or glitter we used.
Thinking it was the recipe and activating agent we were using, I sought help. For this amazing gold slime, I used a professional’s slime recipe for clear slime. And it worked!
That must be why she’s a PRO at making slime. And she’s a professional slime maker, friends. She’s even written a book, “Ultimate Slime Guide,” available on Amazon.

How to Make Pearlized, Bright Gold Slime
We made this slime in just minutes. The color is so intense, but the work isn’t. #happyday
- Add the glue and water together. Stir until the glue is incorporated.
- Mix in the activator (start with 1 tablespoon and add incrementally) and stir. Go slowly until the mass forms. If needed, add a little more activating solution until the mass is fully formed after stirring.
- Stretch the slime slowly – see this article for tips about clear slime. Once it’s lost some of its stickiness, knead it by hand until no longer sticky.
- Lay the slime flat on a protected surface and add in sprinkles of mica powder. We didn’t measure, just layered it over the slime. We used about half a one-ounce bag. Slowly stretch the slime and fold in the mica powder.
- Add in glitter. We used about 3/4 of the 10g bottle.
- Store in an airtight container.
