How To Make My Clear Slime Recipe With Step-By-Step Instructions 

Watch the how to make clear slime video above to follow these step by step instructions and create your own liquid glass slime.

1. Start by placing 1 cup of glue into your bowl.

2. Next mix 1 cup of water with 1 TBSP of baking powder, allowing the powder to dissolve. Stir this mixture into the bowl making sure to mix well.

3. Next, add in 2 TBSP of the saline solution. This is the activator for the clear slime recipe – in other words, it’s what turns the combo actually into slime. Mix well.

4. Add in any glitter or fun clear slime tricks here and continue kneading the slime in your hands until the consistency is right.

What are tips for making your clear slime the best

When making your own clear slime recipe with glue here are a couple of tips we learned along the way that can help it turn out great.

Leave the clear slime out (and covered) for a few days.

All slime stays good when stored correctly, here are my favorite slime containers (we have a fun DIY for these coming up soon).

For the clear slime specifically, when you leave it out and covered it allows the air bubble in the slime to rest – giving you more of the liquid glass look you are after.

When making the recipe, try breaking it in half and storing half for 3-5 days to see the change.

Use the clear slime to showcase your favorite looks.

The best thing about clear slime is that it is basically a blank canvas to play with!

Add in confetti, small toys, colors… really anything you can think if to make the slime even more fun!

Take photos of the kids through the clear slime.

We literally spent over an hour doing this, just for fun! It’s a hoot and the kids have a blast making faces behind their liquid glass slime.
