Make this amazing liquid gold slime for a sensory play slime recipe with a dazzling, metallic twist! This is so beautifully mesmerising that you’ll be fighting the kids to play with it too!
As you know I can’t keep the kids away from the slime making supplies for more than a few days at a time at the moment! And when we have playdates over from school the first thing they all want to do is create a new slime recipe or concoction together.
You can find our absolutely easy peasy, classic, 2 minute slime recipe here. It’s perfect for all my UK/ EU based friends as all the ingredients are easily accessible to us here.
This metallic liquid gold slime has just one simple addition to the original recipe that makes it remarkably shimmery and wonderful to play with!
How to make liquid gold slime
1 cup white/ PVA glue
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (baking powder)
1 tablespoon contact lens solution (use this one or just make sure it has borax listed as an ingredient)
a large squirt of gold acrylic paint (this one is brilliant)

Mix the glue with the gold paint, then add the bicarb. Next stir in the contact lens solution and mix until it becomes stringy like eggs that are cooking.
As soon as it comes away from the edges of the bowl, take it into your hands and knead it. The kneading makes it lose its stickiness and become soft and super stretchy.

Now play! It was amazing just to watch this gold slime falling, twisting and stretching, especially when held near a window or light source. Turning it over and over using a spoon was almost hypnotic and I could have stood doing that for ages. 😀
As usual the kids most love snipping it with scissors, watching it drip thorough an up-turned colander or stretching it soooooo far that they can skip with it! I always say that’s a great measure of a slime batch, if it’s skippable-with!
