Directions to make Silver and Gold Slime:
You will need to make the silver and gold slime separately. Luckily, the process is exactly the same. I will take you through the steps to make each color of slime in this silver and gold slime tutorial.
Pour the entire bottle of Elmer’s Gold Glue into a small bowl.
Next, add in ½ cup of water and ½ teaspoon of baking soda to the glue and stir.
Then, add 1 tablespoon of contact solution. This will cause the slime to begin to form. The slime will be STICKY! But don’t panic. Keep mixing the solution into the slime mixture until the slime starts to pull away from the bowl. This may take longer than you think. Just keep mixing and kneading the slime until it is no longer sticky. Set the gold slime aside.
Now it is time to repeat the process to make your silver slime.
Pour the entire bottle of Elmer’s Silver Glue into a small bowl.
Add in ½ cup of water and ½ teaspoon of baking soda to the sliver glue and stir.
Then, add 1 tablespoon of contact solution. This will cause the sliver slime to start to form. It will be STICKY! Keep mixing the solution into the slime mixture until the sliver slime starts to pull away from the bowl. Then, keep mixing and kneading the slime until it is no longer sticky.
You will now have two colors of slime – sparkly gold and sparkly silver. If your kids want to stop here they can. Each color is cool enough on it’s own.
But when the two colors of slime are swirled together, the real magic happens!
The two colors combine to make a rich looking slime that changes color as you play with it and turn it in your hands.
Eventually, the colors will mix completely, leaving you with a shimmery slime sure to delight your kids.
This slime can be stored in an airtight container if your kids don’t want to play with it right away. After noticing my kids leaving slime everywhere and finding lots of messes, I purchased these containers and they have been a life saver.
