How to Make Metallic Slime

There are several ways to make metallic slime using ingredients you likely have at home. Stir the ingredients in your slime thoroughly, and add your metallic color either by using a metallic paint or a metallic powder to give it that extra shine. By kneading the slime with your hands to combine all of the ingredients, you’ll be left with beautiful metallic slime.

[Edit]Using Starch to Make Metallic Slime
Pour of clear glue into a mixing bowl. Use clear school glue, squirting it into a measuring cup or estimating and squirting it directly into the mixing bowl. If you measured it out, use a spoon to scrape all of the clear glue out of the measuring cup and into the bowl.[1]
Purchase clear glue at your local big box or craft store.
Measure out of metallic paint to put into the bowl. Choose metallic craft paint in any color, such as pink, blue, or purple, or opt for a classic option like silver or gold. Pour the metallic paint into the bowl full of glue.[2]Metallic paint comes in small bottles and can be found at your local craft store or online.
Avoid purchasing professional metallic paint that goes on metal that you would use to paint a car.
Stir the mixture until it’s thoroughly combined. Use a wooden stick or spoon to mix the glue and paint together. Take your time and stir slowly to make sure the glue and paint are no longer easily distinguishable.[3]If you mix them together and want your slime to have more pigment, add a little bit more paint into the glue and mix it again.
Mix liquid starch in slowly until you’re satisfied with the consistency. It’s important to pour the liquid starch slowly while mixing all of the ingredients together to allow the starch time to activate. Continue adding small amounts of starch and combining it with the glue and paint until you’re pleased with the slime’s consistency.[4]Look for liquid starch in the laundry aisle of the grocery store or in craft stores.
Stir the starch in slowly to avoid creating air bubbles.
Take the slime out of the bowl and knead it with your hands. Once your slime is relatively solid, take it out of the bowl and start kneading it with your fingers to keep distributing the ingredients. If your slime is still sticky, add a little bit more starch until it’s no longer sticking to your hands.[5]Use clean, dry hands to knead the slime.
Continue kneading the slime with your hands if you added more starch to evenly distribute it.[Edit]Combining Shaving Cream and Contact Lens Solution
Add of white glue to a mixing bowl. Remove the top from the white glue and pour it into a measuring cup to get the exact amount, or estimate the right amount and pour it directly into the bowl. If you pour it into a measuring cup, use a spoon to scrape out any remaining glue as you pour it into the bowl.[6]
Purchase white school glue from your local big box or craft store.
Mix roughly of shaving cream into the bowl. If you don’t want to use exact measurements, this is okay. The more shaving cream you use, the fluffier your slime will be. Mix the ingredients together thoroughly using a spoon or wooden stick.[7]Use shaving cream that is sprayed out as a foam, not a gel.
If you don’t want your slime to be very fluffy, avoid adding a lot of shaving cream.
Pour metallic paint into the bowl until you reach your desired color. Squirt your chosen color of metallic craft paint into the mixture slowly. Stir the color into the glue and shaving cream as you pour so that you get an accurate idea of how the color is distributing. Continue adding metallic paint and mixing it into the ingredients until you’re satisfied with the color.[8]Add the paint in small amounts. If you add too much in the beginning, you’ll need to add more glue and shaving cream to balance it back out.
Add contact lens solution in small amounts to firm up the slime. Squirt a few drops of contact lens solution into the mixture, stirring it with a spoon or wooden stick to distribute it. Keep adding contact lens solution until you like the slime’s consistency.[9]Instead of a wooden stick or spoon, you can also mix the ingredients together using your hands.
If you touch the slime with your hands and it’s still sticky, add a few more drops of contact lens solution.
Knead the slime using your hands when it’s no longer sticky. Take the slime out of the bowl and start kneading it on a clean surface using your hands. This will help distribute the ingredients even more to ensure your metallic slime is ready to be played with.[10][Edit]Creating It with Contact Lens Solution and Baking Soda
Pour of clear glue into a bowl. Estimate by squirting the glue directly into the bowl, or pour it into a measuring cup first to be exact. Clear school glue can be purchased at your local big box or craft store.[11]
Scrape out any remaining glue from the measuring cup using a spoon or wooden stick if needed.
Mix of baking soda into the glue. Measure out the baking soda and pour it into the bowl full of glue. Use a wooden stick or spoon to stir the baking soda and glue until they are well integrated.[12]
Pour contact lens solution into the bowl slowly while mixing it. Slowly add a few drops of contact lens solution to the glue and baking soda, mixing it with a wooden stick or spoon (or even your hands!). Keep adding the contact solution and mixing until you touch the slime and are pleased with its consistency.[13]The more contact lens solution you add, the firmer your slime will become.
Knead the slime with your hands to continue mixing the ingredients. Use clean, dry hands to remove the slime from the bowl and start kneading it on a flat surface. This will make sure the ingredients are thoroughly mixed together.[14]Add a few more drops of contact lens solution if your slime is still too sticky.
Let your slime sit overnight before adding pigment to it so it becomes super clear, if desired.
Sprinkle metallic powder into the slime and twist it to spread the pigment. Sprinkle fine metallic craft or nail powder in your chosen color into the center of the slime. Fold the edges of the slime into the center using your hands to cover the powder, and then start folding and twisting the slime to spread the powder.[15]Look for metallic craft powder at your local big box store or craft store, or nail powder that’s used on nails at a beauty store.
Add more metallic powder to the slime if desired.
Take your time twisting and kneading the slime to distribute the color evenly.[Edit]Tips
Store your metallic slime in a clean, dry container that’s air-tight.[16][Edit]Warnings
Keep the slime out of reach of children and pets so they don’t consume it.[Edit]References↑ https://www.growingajeweledrose.com/2019/02/metallic-slime-recipe.html

How to Wrap with Tissue Paper

If you have a couple sheets of tissue paper and some tape, you’re ready to wrap a present! Use 2-3 sheets of tissue paper so you can’t see through the wrapping to your gift and fold the tissue paper over the sides of the present before securing the paper with tape. Pinch the middle of a sheet of tissue paper and pull it through the air to easily add it to a gift bag instead. Attach a card or embellishments like bows to make your gift really stand out.

[Edit]Steps
[Edit]Wrapping a Box with Tissue Paper
Layer 2-3 pieces of tissue paper on top of one another on a table. Pick out several pieces of tissue paper, either all in one color or in multiple different colors. Spread them out on a flat surface, layering them on top of one another evenly.[1]
Layering several pieces of tissue paper on top of one another will prevent your gift from being seen through the paper.
Choose pieces of tissue paper that aren’t too crumpled for a smooth look.
Place your gift in the center of the tissue paper to check the sizing. Pull the sides of the tissue paper over the gift to make sure it’s large enough to cover each side. If your piece of tissue paper is too big, either trim it using scissors or fold the excess over the edges.[2]
Set the gift down on the tissue paper face down.
Fold one edge of the tissue paper around and over the top of the gift. With the gift placed on the tissue paper, fold an edge of the tissue paper over the gift tightly. Hold this edge in place covering a side of the gift so it doesn’t fall off.[3]
Pull the opposite edge overtop the first edge, securing it with tape. While still holding the first edge in place, bring the opposite edge of tissue paper to the top of the gift as well, layering it over the first. Tape down the edge so it stays in place on the gift.[4]For a cleaner look, fold the opposite edge of the tissue paper along its length, creating a nice seam before placing it on top of the other edge.
Use double-sided tape if you don’t want the tape to be visible.
Fold the ends of the wrapped gift in towards each other to form straight creases. With the tissue paper secured around your gift, all that’s left are the 2 ends. Bring each edge of the tissue paper to the center of each side, creating creases along the gift so the tissue paper lies flat. Use tape to secure the ends.[5]If your gift is awkwardly shaped, consider gathering each end of the present and tying them with ribbon instead.
Decorate the tissue paper with ribbons or embellishments if desired. Use ribbon to tie a bow onto the wrapped gift, or stick on a premade bow for a quick finishing touch. Get creative by drawing on the tissue paper with markers or pencils, or add stickers to the tissue paper for a unique design.[6]
For example, if the gift is for someone’s birthday, draw birthday balloons on the tissue paper using colorful markers.
Add tissue paper pompoms to your gift for a creative finishing touch.[Edit]Using the Candy Wrapper Technique
Lay 3 sheets of tissue paper on a flat surface. Choose tissue paper in any colors that you like. Lay them flat on top of one another with their edges lined up.[7]
If you choose lighter colors like yellow or white, you may need to use more than 3 sheets to make sure you can’t see the gift through the paper.
Place your item at the top of the tissue paper. Set down your gift right below the top edge of the tissue paper. Situate it in the center so that you’ll have equal amounts of tissue paper on both sides of the gift when you go to tie off the ends.[8]
Roll the object in the tissue paper all the way down to the bottom edge. Holding the top edge of the tissue paper in place against the object, start gently rolling the item in the tissue paper towards the bottom edge of paper. Go slowly to create a tighter roll and keep the object centered in the middle of the tissue paper.[9]If your item is weirdly shaped, it may be difficult to keep it perfectly centered in the tissue paper as you roll, and this is okay.
Fold the bottom edge of tissue paper over to create a long crease. This isn’t required, but it will make your wrapping job look neater. Fold the bottom edge of your tissue paper in towards your gift going along the entire length. Finish rolling the gift so that the folded edge is placed on top of the roll.[10]
Secure the rolled tissue paper edges using tape. Holding the tissue paper edge in place on the roll using your fingers, place a piece of tape along this edge so that the roll doesn’t come undone. Place multiple pieces along the tissue paper roll if your gift is long.[11]Use double-sided tape if you don’t want the tape to be visible.
Use ribbon to tie off each open end of the tissue paper. Pick out ribbon that matches your tissue paper and cut it into strands that are roughly long. Feel the tissue paper to find the edges of your gift, and tie the tissue paper using ribbon to secure the present in place.[12]Tie your ribbon into a bow on each end, or use scissors to create curls if you’re using curling ribbon.[Edit]Putting Tissue Paper in a Bag
Wrap the gift in a layer of tissue paper before putting it in the bag, if needed. If your gift is fragile or you just want it covered up, wrap it in a piece of white or colored tissue paper and place it inside the bag. The gift doesn’t need to be wrapped perfectly, just as long as the tissue paper is covering it.[13]
If you’re worried about the gift falling out of the tissue paper, use tape to secure it.
Wrap extra fragile items in several sheets of tissue paper.
Spread out 1-4 sheets of tissue paper depending on the size of your gift bag. If you’re adding tissue paper to a small bag designed for something like a gift card or piece of jewelry, you’ll likely only need 1 piece of tissue paper. Larger bags can use anywhere from 2-4 pieces of tissue paper. Spread the tissue paper out so that each piece is laying flat.[14]
Cut your piece of tissue paper in half for super small bags.
Layer the tissue paper in a fan pattern if you’re using multiple sheets. Instead of placing a bunch of pieces directly on top of each other all lined up, fan the pieces out on top of each other in a circle so each paper’s corners are visible. This adds volume and creates a beautiful tissue paper display.[15]If your tissue paper is one-sided, place the side with the color or pattern face-down so it will be seen.
Pinch the middle of the tissue paper and wave it gently through the air. Grasping the piece or pieces of tissue paper in the center using your fingers, gently lift the paper up in one quick motion so the ends all point in one direction. Be careful not to pull the paper through the air too harshly or it might rip.[16]Pinching the center of the tissue paper helps create the flower-like visual after the tissue paper’s ends are sticking up.
Stick the tissue paper in the bag to display the crisp points. Holding the pinched portion of the tissue paper, settle the paper down into the bag so the points are sticking up out of it evenly. Play around with the placement of the tissue paper, adjusting it until you’re pleased with how it looks.[17]Leave enough tissue paper sticking out of the bag so you can see its colors.
Add embellishments like gift tags or bows if desired. Tie a gift tag onto the bag’s handle, or use tape to attach a premade bow to make the bag look extra festive. Don’t forget to put your card in the bag too, if needed![18]
Instead of using a premade bow, consider tying your own bow onto the bag’s handle using ribbon in a color that matches the tissue paper.[Edit]Things You’ll Need
