Make clear slime that looks like liquid glass!
My daughter and I have enjoyed experimenting with different kinds of slime, but this recipe is our favorite one so far! This clear slime is amazing and looks like liquid glass. It took a bit of trial and error to get it to come out perfectly, but if you follow the instructions you can make it, too. This is enough to make a “personal sized” slime. You can double or triple the ingredients to make more clear slime for a larger group.
Supplies Needed to Make Clear Slime:
- 2 tbsp Clear Glue
- 1 tbsp water
- 1/4 tsp borax solution
- 2 tbsp warm water
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- Mixing bowls (2)
- Spatula or craft stick for stirring
- Mat to knead slime on
Note: If you don’t have a borax solution you can substitute it with contact lens solution as long as it has boric acid in it. To make your own borax solution, simply add borax powder to hot water and let it dissolve.
Add the glue, water, and borax solution to a bowl. Mix the three items together slowly using a spatula or stick. I don’t recommend a spoon because kids tend to “whip” the mixture too quickly and then it gets filled with tiny air bubbles. To keep the mixture as clear as possible, use spatula or wide craft stick.
In a separate bowl, mix the warm water and baking soda until the soda dissolves. Add this mixture to the glue mix and stir slowly.
Set the “batter” aside for 5 minutes to let everything gel and set correctly.
Remove the slime from the container. There will usually be some liquid left behind, and that is fine. You have more than enough to play with! Knead the slime if needed and then start stretching it out. It’s amazing how clear it is, and how stretchy it can be!
You can add in mix-ins like glitter and sequins if desired. The more you play with the slime the more small air bubbles it will get. When you stretch it out, though, it will still look clear. Enjoy it while it lasts!
