A metallic paint slime recipe with only 4 ingredients! Below you will learn how to make paint slime with a step-by-step tutorial and video.
Slime is seriously so much fun to make, and I am saying that as a full-grown adult! I can't believe all of the different variations from fluffy, to glitter, to butter; it is all so crazy!
Today we are making a paint slime. We used metallic paint, which gives the slime a beautiful metallic look! But you can use any acrylic paint in this slime recipe.
When we made our paint slime, we were actually making 2 different colors at the same time, so that is why you will see pictures of brown slime and pink slime.

- 5 oz Elmer's Clear School Glue
- ½ cup Water
- Acrylic Paint
- ¼ cup Sta-Flo Liquid Starch
- Glass Mixing Bowl
How to Make Paint Slime:
In the glass mixing bowl, combine the clear glue and water. Mixing well.
Add the acrylic paint, and you can add more or less depending on how you want the slime to look. Just remember, you can always add more, but you can't take it away. So add some paint, stir, and repeat until you get the desired shade.
Slowly begin adding the liquid starch. Add about a tablespoon, stir, and repeat. You probably will not use the entire ¼ cup of liquid starch.
Once the mixture starts to thicken, you can begin mixing with your hands.
Continue adding small amounts of liquid starch until the slime reaches the correct consistency. The slime should be gooey, but not stick to your hands.
Store the slime in an air-tight container.
If the slime starts breaking apart and not being as ooey-gooey, you can add a bit of lotion or baby oil to soften it back up.
