What kind of clay do you use for butter slime?
It is super important that you use Model Magic clay to make butter slime. We have tried other types of clay products and they just didn’t work or mix into the other slime ingredients well.
Model Magic is definitely key in this slime recipe and the best clay for butter slime.
Let’s make this fun and easy butter slime recipe!
Butter slime ingredients:
- 1/2 Cup of White Glue
- 1 Tablespoon Contact Lens Solution (Must contain boric acid so the slime activator will work.)
- 1/2 Cup of Foam Shaving Cream
- 1 oz of Model Magic Clay
- 1 tsp Lotion (as needed)
The ingredient list is really simple and makes it easy to make this fun butter slime recipe. Give it a try and see how easy and fun it is!
How to make Butter Slime:
First, in a small mixing bowl, combine the glue and shaving cream until it’s well combined.
Next, slowly stir in the contact lens solution until the slime is formed.
While mixing, once the glue starts to pull away from the bowl and stick the spoon, remove the slime from the bowl and knead with your hands.
Then place the model magic clay in the center of your slime and mix with your hands until well combined and the slime changes the color to the color of the model magic clay that you chose.
Pro Tip: Make sure you use model magic as we tried other clay products and it did not mix in well. Model magic is key in this slime recipe!
Then add lotion to make the slime more stretchy. We added a small amount (1 tsp) and mixed it in with our hands until the slime was stretchy.
If you want your slime more stretchy, mix in more lotion until the slime is consistency that you desire.
