So, you wanna make some clear crystal slime but you’re in the UK and you can’t find Elmers clear glue that all the Youtubers in the USA tell you to use? Fear not!
In summary, the following clear glues have been tried and tested by me and make good slime in combination with a good activator. To make the slime more interesting you can add floam glitter, paint, food colouring shaving foam, Daiso Clay, Crayloa Model Magic etc.
Clear Glue from S&S Arts and Crafts
Price: £3.23 for 1 litre + £2.99 for delivery = total £6.22 or £62p per 100ml.
Delivery is reasonably quick, my last batch arrived in a few days.
Clear Glue from Hobby Craft
Price: £2.00 for 300ml + £4.50 delivery (free for orders over £20) = total £6.50 or £2.16 for 100ml
You can obviously save on delivery if you can pick up from a local Hobby Craft, but call before you make a trip to make sure they have some on the shelf.
Elmers clear glue
You can click on the link below to view or buy from Amazon.co.uk, but this is the most expensive at £4.45 for 147ml, or £3.03 for 100ml without delivery!
Pritt Transparent Glue
Very expensive at around £2.99 instore for 135ml or £2.21 for 100ml! Advantage with this one is you can probably get some at your local supermarket. I’ve bought before from Adsa and Sainsburys. Product link to Amazon.co.uk is below:
Home Bargains clear glue pens, pack of 3 pens
Home Bargains do a pack of 3 clear glue pens, each at 50ml, making a total of 150ml
Price: 99p for 3 x 50ml pens (150ml in total) or 66p for 100ml. Price is comparable to S&S Arts and Crafts Clear glue, but these pens are rather scarce and so a bit hit and miss to whether you’ll find them instore. Whenever I see them I do pick up a few.
Clear Slime Activator
To make clear Slime you’ll need a Clear Activator such as contact lens solution. I recommend “Bausch & Lomb Sensitive Eyes Saline Solution” which comes in a 500ml bottle.
You can get it here from Amazon.co.uk. If you plan on making a lot of Slime, it’s usually cheaper to buy a pack of 3:
