Shimmer Confetti Slime

Making shimmer confetti slime is so much fun and almost looks good enough to eat but not quite. It’s great for sensory play, rainy day activity for the kids, birthday parties and more. The kids will enjoy making this slime with the array or shimmery colors.

This recipe does not require borax as some slime recipes do. If you prefer to use borax you can mix 1 tbsp borax powder and 1 cup of warm water together. Stir until the borax is completely dissolved. Then, in a separate bowl, mix 1/2 cup of glue and 1/2 cup of water.  Stir until the mixture is well combined (the mixture will be watery) and then add a few drops of color until you get the color you want. Repeat these steps for each bowl of color. The non-borax recipe is below.

Shimmer Confetti Slime

  • 1 1/2 cup White Glue
  • 1 1/2 cup Liquid Starch
  • Lilac metallic acrylic paint
  • Blue metallic acrylic paint
  • Silver metallic acrylic paint
  • 3 bowls
  • 3 spoons
  • Container to store slime in


  1. Pour a 1/2 cup of glue in each bowl.
  2. Add lilac metallic acrylic paint in one bowl and mix together.
  3. Add blue metallic acrylic paint in the other bowl and mix together.
  4. Add silver metallic acrylic paint in the other bowl and mix together.
  5. Add 1/2 cup of liquid starch to each bowl and stir.
  6. Take the slime out of each bowl and knead them separately for about 3-4 minutes or until it thickens.
  7. Take the slime out of each bowl and line up each of the colors next to each other.
  8. Repeat the pattern until you are out of the slime.
  9. Sprinkle the confetti throughout the slime evenly.
  10. Scoop up the slime and begin to play!

If the consistency of the slime is not right you can add a little bit more of starch and knead the slime again. The more you play with the slime the less sticky it will be.
