DIY Rose Gold Slime


This is a very easy homemade slime recipe!
Note: We happened to have these ingredients on hand, leftover from other projects. I don't know that I would have ordered them just to make this slime, as amazing as it is! Also, Borax isn't super healthy. Sorry about that. There are lots of Borax-free recipes out there though. 


Ingredients:

1 5oz. bottle Elmer's Clear School Glue
1 tsp. Borax powder
1 C. very warm water
Pale Pink Mica Powder (here)
Gold Glitter, optional (here)

Instructions: 
1. Add 1 tsp. Borax powder to 1 C. very warm water. Stir to dissolve. Set aside and cool to room temperature-ish.

2. Into a medium bowl empty entire bottle of glue. Fill glue bottle with room temp water, give a little shake and pour that into your bowl of glue. Stir until well combined. 

3. Now you're going to slowly add Borax, 1 tsp. at a time, to your bowl of glue. *Don't go too fast here, getting all crazy with the Borax or you'll be back at Step 1.* After each addition give a few good, slow, swirly stirs. The mixture will start to get a bit gelatinous. Once it's jelly enough, pick it up and start kneading. Don't worry, it will come together and stop sticking to your hands! If you need to, add a tad more Borax to the bottom of your bowl and swirl it around a second, then knead again. If you've done it correct it will be nice and stretchy. If you've added too much Borax it will just break when you try and pull it. 

4. Time to add color! Place your slime on a surface you don't care a lick about. Sprinkle 1/2 tsp. mica powder into the middle. Fold all the sides of the slime blob over the mica and start kneading. Add more to your liking. Also add the glitter now, if you're using. 

Enjoy your stretchy, crackly, sparkly Rose Gold Slime!
