Sunset Clouds Slime

I’ve seen so many posts and recipes about avalanche slime lately, it inspired me to create my own version trying to recreate the beautiful tranquil colors of sunset and twilight on a cloudy night. This recipe absolutely did not disappoint, and is sure to please any age.  The colors blended beautifully and it looked almost glassy. We loved how that the more you play with it, the more the bright colors blend into a beautiful twinkly periwinkle blue, like sunset to twilight itself. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did! 

*Plan Ahead Tip: Similar to avalanche slime, it’s going to have to sit overnight or 8-10 hours to get the desired effect 

To get started you will need:

  • White and clear school glue 
  • Liquid starch
  • Water
  • Iridescent or holographic glitter (optional)
  • Pink, orange, and blue food coloring 
  • Closeable container for slime
  • Mixing bowl
  • Paper plates (optional but convenient)

Like many of the other multi-color slime recipes, we are going to use small batches to keep it manageable and for better results. Recipe can always be doubled for a larger amount. 

  1. We’re going to start with the clear batches. Combine 2 tablespoons (1/8 cup) of clear glue and 1 table spoon of water in the mixing bowl, and mix all the way until the liquid is clear with no streaks. 
  2. Add your pink into the mix and stir until all the way blended 
  3. Add 2 tablespoons of liquid starch and immediately start stirring in a circular motion until it becomes one big clump in the middle of the bowl 
  4. Remove the glob and all the little bits from the bowl and work it in your hands for a few minutes to smooth it out and remove excess moisture, then lay on a paper plate to rest 
  5. Repeat the exact same steps with orange food coloring instead of pink for the second batch 
  6. For the last batch with clear glue, repeat the same steps again with blue, but add a pinch of glitter for twilight stars! 
  7. Now lastly, we’re going to create the white batch that will be our clouds. This batch is bigger than our first 3 batches to make sure it completely covers the colors in the jar we’ll be putting them into. Take 1/4 cup white glue and mix thoroughly in your bowl with 2 tablespoons of water until it’s milky and not streaky 
  8. Add 1/4 cup of liquid starch and immediately start stirring in a circular motion until it becomes one big clump in the middle of the bowl 
  9. Remove the glob and all the little bits from the bowl and work it in your hands for a few minutes to smooth it out and remove excess moisture, then lay on a paper plate to rest 
  10. While the white glue sits on the plate to rest (as I’ve mentioned earlier, I’ve found this significantly improves the texture and consistency), start rolling up each color batch and placing them in the container next to each other
  11. Lastly, take the white slime and place on top making sure it completely covers all the colors, push it down, and put on the lid 
  12. Now comes the waiting! Keep it closed, and let it sit 8-10 hours or overnight. My daughter really enjoyed taking notes on what was happening! You’ll know it’s ready when the white slime has submerged into the bright slime
  13. Ready! Remove from the jar and enjoy watching the beautiful colors swirl and blend
