You’ve probably heard that for making Butter Slime you need clay, but I have an easy recipe for you that even if it’s made without clay, you can still spread your slime like butter! And since Daiso clay is very expensive and hard to find, you’d probably prefer not to use it to make butter slime. And how can you make butter slime without soft clay? Just add cornstarch!
Butter slime has a very cool texture and it’s spreadable, that’s why it’s called butter slime. It’s also very soft, smooth and stretchy! And what I love the most about this butter slime is that it can hold its shape for a longer time than any other type of slime. You could even use cookie cutters with it, or cut it into pieces with a butter knife. If you want your butter slime to look like butter, try adding some yellow food coloring.
Since butter slime holds its shape really well, you can use it as “frosting” to decorate some of your slimes! To make this easy butter slime recipe you will only need 3 ingredients, or 4 if you are adding food coloring to it. Have fun with it and add some glitter too!
- 1 bottle of Elmer’s Washable White Glue (4fl oz/118ml), which equals to 1/2 a cup
- Borax (or you can use Sta Flo instead of borax)
- 3 tablespoons of Corn Starch
- Food coloring (optional)
How to Make Easy Butter Slime Without Clay
- Make the borax mixture by adding 1 teaspoon of borax powder to 1 cup of warm water (hot tap water will work). Stir well to combine. Set aside.
- Pour out the entire contents of Elmer’s glue into the bowl.
- Add the corn starch and mix thoroughly.
- Add food coloring and stir well.
- Add some of the borax mixture to the bowl and stir. Keep adding little by little until it begins to form. When the mixture is not too sticky anymore, you can take the slime out of the bowl and begin kneading with your hands. Be careful not to add too much activator or the slime will become stiff. Just add as much as you need to make the slime stretchy and not sticky.
- Store the slime in an airtight container when not playing with it. If it becomes very hard, you can add some lotion to the slime to make it stretchy again.
