You're new to the skills necessary to complete this project, or maybe you've tried them just once or twice before.
Step 1
Project Notes:
  • All types of Elmer’s® glue work with this recipe; however, we used three 5 fl. oz. bottles of clear glue and one 4 fl. oz. bottle of white glue to make Red Hot Lava Slime as shown.
  • Be careful when children are crafting with sequins, as the product does have a choke hazard warning on the label.
  • Protect your work surface with wax (or palette) paper and wear an apron (or other protective garment) to protect clothing, as the food coloring may stain.
 
First, find your favorite glue slime recipe. Add color to each slime according to your recipe’s instructions.
 
TIP: Elmer’s® has some great recipes; click here to download.  
Step 2
This slime has four colored stripes: red; orange glitter; yellow glitter and black glitter. To make red slime, use one 4 fl. oz. bottle of white glue. To get the color shown, add No-Taste Red food coloring according to your recipe’s instructions.
 
TIP: Dip a craft stick into the food coloring container, then mix the color into the glue, stirring thoroughly until it’s completely blended. Always use a new, clean craft stick when dipping into your food coloring in order to avoid cross-contamination.
Step 3
To make orange glitter slime, use one 5 fl. oz. bottle of clear glue. To get the color shown, add Lemon Yellow food coloring and a smaller quantity of No-Taste Red food coloring. 
Step 4
Once your slime is made, flatten it out on a piece of wax (or palette) paper and sprinkle on Orangeade fine glitter, Orange Metallic glitter and red sequins. Fold the slime’s edges in toward the center to blend the mix-ins into the slime. Continue until they are evenly distributed throughout the slime. 
Step 5
To make yellow glitter slime, use one 5 fl. oz. bottle of clear glue. To get the color shown, add Lemon Yellow food coloring. Once your slime is made, repeat Step 4 to blend in white iridescent glitter. 
Step 6
To make black glitter slime, use one 5 fl. oz. bottle of clear glue. To get the color shown, add black food coloring. Once your slime is made, blend in black glitter and black iridescent sequins. 
Step 7
Form each slime into a long strip and lay each strip next to the other on your non-stick surface. Now, fold and twist the slime strips together until you have blended them just the way you like. 
Step 8
Store your slime in an airtight, sealable container (or re-sealable plastic bag).
