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 two 5 fl. oz. bottles of clear glue and two 4 fl. oz. bottles of white glue to make Starry 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. For the Starry Slime, 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: black star slime, pink slime, teal slime and crystal slime. To make black star slime, use one 5 fl. oz. bottle of clear glue. To get the color shown, add black food coloring and a very small quantity of Royal Blue 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
Flatten out your slime on a piece of wax (or palette) paper and sprinkle on fine glitter in Silver, pink, purple, Peacock Blue and dark blue. Fold the slime’s edges in toward the center to blend the glitters into the slime. Continue until they are evenly distributed throughout the slime. Repeat to mix tiny Silver stars into the slime. 
Step 4
To make crystal slime, make your favorite 5 oz. clear glue recipe. Repeat Step 3 to blend white iridescent glitter into the slime. Continue until it is evenly distributed throughout the slime. 
Step 5
To make pink slime, use a recipe that calls for a 4 fl. oz. bottle of white glue. To get the color shown add pink food coloring and a tiny quantity of Violet food coloring, according to your recipe's directions. 
Step 6
To make teal slime, use a recipe that calls for a 4 fl. oz. bottle of white glue. To get the color shown add teal food coloring according to your recipe’s instructions. 
Step 7
Form each slime into a long strip and lay each one next to the other on your non-stick surface. Now, fold and twist the slimes 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).
