This slime isn’t actually made with butter, but looks like it! It’s soft, fluffy, and very fun to squeeze.
What you’ll need for Butter Slime
- Large bowl
- Mixing tool (spoon, spatula, or stir stick)
- Measuring cups and spoons
- An airtight container
Butter slime Ingredients
- One batch of Basic White Glue Slime
- Approximately the same amount (by volume) of air-dry clay as slime
- Color additive
- 1 to 3 drops of fragrance oil
- Lotion (if needed; to make the slime less stiff)
- Cornstarch (if needed; to make the slime thicker)
- Depends on the amount of slime and clay you use.
Daiso Soft Clay, a Japanese product, is the best air-dry clay for making butter slime, but it can be difficult to find. Other air-dry clays, such as Crayola Model Magic, Delight Air Dry Modeling Compound (the brand I used to make the butter slime shown), and Hearty Super Lightweight Modeling Clay, will also work if you add lotion to your slime.
Cookie Dough: Butter Slime + tan coloring + baked pieces of brown polymer clay
Strawberry Cream Cheese: Butter Slime + pink coloring
1. Make a batch of Basic White Glue Slime (see here) that’s slightly sticky. Add color and/or fragrance oil if you like.
2. Measure out about the same amount of air-dry clay as slime (see A).
3. Mix the slime and clay together thoroughly until there are no lumps of clay. The slime should have a smooth texture throughout (see B).
4. If the mixture is too sticky, add a little more activator. If you prefer a fluffier texture, add a little more clay. If the slime is too stiff, add a little lotion. Add a little cornstarch for a thicker texture.
5. Playing with slime is the best way to fully mix the clay and slime together. Keep mixing until the texture is consistent, super creamy, and spreadable!
6. Store the finished slime in an airtight container so it doesn’t dry out.
