Who doesn’t like glitter? If you’ going for shiny and sparkly, glitter is the way to go. While glitter glue was an older way of incorporating some sparkles to a slime, today’s slimers are using dry glitter as it creates room for more creativity since there are many more forms of dry glitter–from shaped flakes to thin glittery powders. Glitter is available in a wide range of colors. Whatever your recipe, you can always find the ideal glitter color to add some form of twinkle to your slime. Glitter slime can be used together with other slime add ins as well.
