How to Make Different Kinds of Slime

How to Make Different Kinds of Slime

Slimes exist in more shapes and forms than we can probably think of. We at 5-Minute Crafts will show you a few of our favorite ones.

1. Butter slime

Butter slime has a texture similar to butter itself. It’s moldable, fluffy, and stretchy but not too much.

You’ll need:

  • 8 ounces of white glue, 1 teaspoon of baby oil, 2 tablespoons of baby lotion, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 3 tablespoons of water, and 1 tablespoon of contact lens solution (needs to contain boric acid and sodium borate), clay.

How to do it:

  1. Pour the glue into a bowl and mix your baking soda in.
  2. Then add water and mix it again.
  3. Afterward, comes the baby oil and the lotion, mix these in as well.
  4. Add the tablespoon of contact lens solution, and mix it once more.
  5. Now pour the slime onto your table and add a bit of clay to it.
  6. Knead it until you think it’s enough (the more you do it, the less sticky it becomes).
  7. Lastly, simply stretch it and fold it as much as you’d like so that you can create your own unique swirl.

2. Icee slime

Its texture is moist because of the instant snow you put in it. It will inflate as you play with it, and it may also get more opaque the more it is used.

You’ll need:

  • 2 8 ounce bottles of clear glue, food coloring, 2 teaspoons of borax, 1/2 cup of water, instant snow, and foam soap.

How to do it:

  1. Pour the glue into a bowl and add 4 drops of your chosen food coloring.
  2. Pump 4 to 6 pumps of soap into your mixture, add 1/2 cup of water, and stir all of it together.
  3. Now, add the borax and stir the mixture until you have formed the slime.
  4. Knead it in a bowl until it’s not sticky anymore.
  5. Lastly, add dry instant snow to your slime, and knead it again. Add more until you finally reach your desired icee texture.

3. Crunchy slime

Crunchy slime is regular slime, but it has foam or other types of beads added to it. They’re what gives the slime a different twist, as well as the crunch in its name.

You’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup of white glue, 1/2 cup of liquid starch, food coloring, and 1 cup of miniature foam balls.

How to do it:

  1. Add the glue and the starch to a bowl, and mix them together until you get a slime-like texture. You can add more liquid starch if needed (one tablespoon at a time). The slime itself should be stretchy and firm, but not sticky.
  2. Add your food coloring and stir the slime again until it’s evenly spread.
  3. For the crunch, simply add the cup of foam balls to the slime. Afterward, stir or knead the slime until all of the balls are inside of it.

4. Cloud slime

The texture of this slime can be compared to kinetic sand. Picture how snow would fall from a cloud, and that’s more or less how cloud slime should feel.

You’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup of clear glue, 1/4 cup of liquid starch, food coloring, and instant snow.

How to do it:

  1. First, add the glue, as well as the food coloring to a bowl.
  2. Then, mix in 1/4 cup of liquid starch and stir the mixture to form the slime.
  3. Add 1/2 cup of instant snow to your slime and mix everything together.

5. Jelly slime

It’s slightly more watery than other types of slime and it uses a secret ingredient to get its jelly texture — instant snow.

You’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup of clear glue, soap coloring, a tea spoon of instant snow powder, water, and a slime activator.

How to do it:

  1. To start, mix your glue with the color you’ve decided to use.
  2. Then, pour the instant snow powder into a container and add water (add more until the snow turns clear).
  3. Now, mix both the snow and the colored glue. Here, the more snow you decide to add, the more jelly-like the slime will feel.
  4. Add 1/4 of a cup of slime activator to start with, but keep adding more until your slime is no longer sticky.

6. DIY clay

DIY clay is where you can let your imagination flow. It can be a slime of any texture, but you also add a topper made out of clay, which can then be sculpted into anything you like. Afterward, simply mix both the slime and the clay, and morph them into a new texture.
