The process of making butter slime involves making slime and then adding clay to it. There are a lot of different clays that you can use, however we have found that Japanese clay works best for making butter slime. We prefer the DIASO clay because it is lighter then most. But really any craft slime can be used to make butter slime! If you are wanting to make butter slime without clay, then we suggest using model magic. But again we prefer to use craft clay in our butter slime recipes.
You are going to have so much more fun with your slime when you make this butter slime recipe! Now the other important thing to remember is that you want your clay to kinda match your slime. Having a stockpile of soft clay on hand is always important when you have slime loving kids. Do yourself the favor and order a bunch of colors ahead of time. We like to use clay colors similar to the slime we are making. If you do not have a similar color clay, then go with white clay. It will lighten the color of your slime with out changing the color of it.
