The enigmatic unicorn slime! The thing about unicorns is that they’re one-of-a-kind, so let’s create some unicorn slime.
- 1/2 cup Clear Washable PVA School Glue
- Food Coloring (grab a neon set!)
- 1/2 cup Water
- 1/4 cup Liquid Starch
- Glitter and Sequins
How to Make Unicorn Slime
- Blend 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup glue in a mixing dish and combine well.
2. Now is the moment to add some color, glitter, or confetti to your project!
When you add color to white glue, keep in mind that the color will be lighter. For jewel-toned colors, use clear glue.
There’s no such thing as too much glitter! In a separate bowl, combine the glitter and color with the glue and water mixture.
3. Stir in 1/4 cup liquid starch well.
The slime will begin to form and pull away from the bowl’s sides almost immediately. Continue churning until you get a slimy glob. The liquid should no longer be present!
4. Get your slime kneading! It will appear stringy at first, but as you work it with your hands, the consistency will improve.
When making liquid starch slime, a few drops of liquid starch on your hands before scooping up the slime is a good idea. Keep in mind, however, that while adding additional liquid starch lessens stickiness, it will eventually result in a firmer slime.
How to Color Slime
Making slime is a pleasant way to pass the time, but making colorful slime is much more enjoyable. Food coloring is the most frequent way to add color to slime, but you may also use paint, eyeshadow, or even markers! You can either paint a pre-made batch of clear or white slime or manufacture a new batch of rainbow slime using a simple formula.
Adding Color to Pre-Made Slime
- Knead in a few drops of food coloring to your slime. You can add whatever color you like to your slime. 1 drop straight onto the slime Then, using your hands, knead the food coloring into the slime. Knead until the color is evenly spread throughout the slime. To make the color more prominent, add another drop.
- You can use a single color or a combination of colors. You could produce blue slime with a drop of blue food coloring, or purple slime with a drop of blue and red food coloring.
If food coloring gets on your hands, clothes, or other surfaces, it will stain them. While kneading the slime, put on disposable vinyl gloves and an old t-shirt or apron, and cover your work surface with paper towels or newspaper.
2. Draw on your slime with markers, then knead in the color. Drawing on your slime with washable markers is a fun and easy way to add color. Draw whatever you want on your slime or simply color it in with a marker after spreading it out flat. The slime should next be kneaded to disperse the color.
- To deepen the color, repeat this process as needed.
- Generate new hues by mixing different colors together, such as yellow and blue to make green slime or red and blue to make purple slime.
3. Coloured your slime using 1 teaspoon (5 g) of color pigment. You can make slime with a particular color pigment or with powdered eyeshadow. 1 teaspoon (about 5 g) of the color pigment of your choice Then, knead the pigment into your slime until it is equally dispersed.
- If necessary, add more pigment to attain the desired color.
- You can paint your slime with whatever pigment or eyeshadow color you like. For purple slime, use a purple pigment or eyeshadow, and for dazzling black slime, use a glittery charcoal pigment or eyeshadow.
4. To add color and sparkle to your slime, knead glitter into it. Choose a multicolored glitter in your preferred size and texture. After that, knead 1 teaspoon of glitter into your slime. Continue to add 1 teaspoon at a time until the slime has reached the desired hue.
- When manufacturing slime, you may also use glitter glue in place of conventional glue to make glittering slime .
- Although chunky glitter will not color the slime, you can use it in conjunction with another coloring option to make a sparkly slime.
Making Slime with Paint or Food Coloring
- Equal parts water and white or clear school glue are combined. 12 cup (120 mL) water and 12 cup (120 mL) white or transparent school glue are measured out. Pour both ingredients into a mixing basin and stir with a plastic or metal spoon until fully blended.
- Your slime will be translucent or see-through if you use clear adhesive.
- Your slime will be opaque if you use white glue, and you won’t be able to see through it.
Tip: You won’t need to add any food coloring or paint to your slime if you use colored glue! The color of the glue you use will show through.
2. 1–2 drops of food coloring or paint of your choice Other liquid colors, such as acrylic paint, poster paint, or liquid watercolor, can be used instead of food coloring. You could even use glow-in-the-dark paint to make a more fascinating slime.
- You can pick a color you prefer or mix two colors together to make a new color, such as orange slime with one drop of yellow and one drop of red.
3. With a spoon, stir the liquid coloring into the glue-water until it is evenly colored. If the slime is too pale, add another 1 or 2 drops of your chosen color and stir it again. Continue to add color one drop at a time until you achieve the desired hue.
- If the water is just a light green after adding 1 drop of green food coloring, add another drop and mix again.
4. Add 14 cup (59 mL) liquid starch to the mixture. Add the liquid starch to the bowl after measuring it. The liquid starch should then be mixed in with the remaining ingredients until everything is properly blended.
- Use clear liquid starch or a similar-colored liquid starch to match your pigment.
- To stir in the liquid starch, use a spoon or fork.
5. To finish the slime, knead it for 1 minute. After you finish swirling the slime, it will begin to form a blob. Pull the slime out of the bowl when this happens. Knead it with your hands until it’s the consistency you want. The slime will become stiffer the longer you knead it.
- If the slime is too firm after 1 minute, add 1 to 2 teaspoons (5 to 10 mL) extra water and knead it again.
- If it’s still too sticky after 1 minute, add 1 to 2 teaspoons (5 to 10 mL) additional starch and knead it again.
- If desired, put on a pair of gloves to shield your hands from the dye.
6. Keep the slime in a sealed plastic container or a sandwich bag with a zipper. Slime will survive for several weeks if you keep it clean and store it in a plastic container or zippered bag when not in use. When the slime has dried out, discard it and start over.
