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:

How to Make Clear Slime and Gold Slime

  1. Add the glue and water together. Stir until the glue is incorporated.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Add in glitter. We used about 3/4 of the 10g bottle.
  6. Store in an airtight container.

Yield: 1 cup shiny gold slime
