This wiki has been updated 9 times since it was first published in May of 2020. Though first released in the mid 1970s, Slime is still a popular toy, and while you can buy it pre-made and ready to use, making your own is so much more fun. That is where glitter glue comes in, as glue is one of the main ingredients, and the addition of glitter gives it some added bling. Our selections are also ideal for a wide variety of creative arts and crafts projects. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

June 19, 2020:

When you need glue for arts and crafts, the kind you choose depends on the project. Fabric glues are great for working with fabrics, glass glues are made for glass projects, and basic, white glue can be used for a wide range of activities. Glitter glue is an ideal choice for adding sparkle to your crafts, and it is also perfect for making the latest craze - slime.

The brighter the colors, the more vibrant your creations are, and the more glitter in the glue, the more sparkle your slime will have, which is why we selected Elmer's Liquid, which comes with 4 bottles of shiny glue in vivid colors and with plenty of glitter. The Positive Art Essential contains 24 different colors, each one individually labeled with a charming name. This selection provides your child with a wide range of color choices for slime, as well as for art projects.

While the Darice 1166-89 is only a single container, it holds 4 ounces of shimmery glue, which goes a long way in slime, and it has a cork for the tip that helps prevent clogging. Another fun choice is Elmer's Glow-in-the-Dark, available in several shiny, neon colors. When used to make slime, your child can turn out the lights, and this glue ensures that the slime glows brightly. The U.S. Art Supply My Slime is made specifically for slime, so the colors are bright and the glitter is abundant.
