Clear Slime Recipe

Why make clear slime? What would be your reason to do so?

Clear slime is fun for so many reasons

  • Unlike the magnetic slime recipe, it has nearly no mess to it.
  • And much like bubble gum slime recipe this clear slime will be played with for hours.
  • The kids love it because they can see through the slime, which makes playing with it even more enjoyable.
  • And it looks like liquid glass which makes it a fun science experiment for everyone involved.

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.

    Hi! I got all of the supplies to make this but I’m a little confused on this part of the instructions: “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.” What does “out and covered” mean? (Like should it be in a bowl covered with a dish towel? Or just in the final container with the lid on? ) And also for the note to break in in half and storing it for 3-5 days, how should the stored part be stored vs the part that you’re not storing?

    Sorry for all the qs, I’ve just never made slime before! Thanks!

      Hey Rachel, I have never made slime before either, but I’ve watched enough slime making videos to know that you put the slime in an airtight container.

      HI. Thanks for the questions. Please do store in an airtight container or the slime quickly dries out! But for the immediate resting air bubble part, you can leave it uncovered for 20-30 minutes and it will get more glassy to look at.

    How can I make my own saline solution? I will be working with 80 kids in 4 or 5 groups, so this will be a demo. I plan to mix up clear slime tripling the amounts. Each child will get a plastic egg to store their slime overnight, then take it home the next day. any suggestions for mass producing the slime?
