The Best Butter Slime Recipe - Plus Ways to Play with It

This time though, I think I’ve created the perfect butter slime recipe. I hope you have fun and that this recipe works for you as well as it worked for me. :)

First, here’s a video tutorial showing how to make butter slime.

And here’s the butter slime recipe and step by step instructions.

      Ruby, this comment is very inappropriate and you will get in a lot of trouble uttering threats like this whether you mean it or not. :(

    Hi, Maia! Thank you for this recipe, my daughter really wants to try it. I searched the shops (we are in New Zealand) and could not find Model Magic anywhere. Can I substitute it with Play-Doh or even omit it? Also, do you think adding some food colouring insteas of model magic would work? Thanks a lot! This website isfantastic! Cheers. Ana

      Not the regular size bottle, but the next size up. I’ll have to look up the size. But it’s not the ginormous bottles that they sell these days.
