The most common addition to slime is a color. Your plain, DIY slime will most likely come out as clear or white, depending on your ingredients. But you’ll only see beautifully colored slimes all over the internet and Instagram. Color is one of the most important components of your slime. Especially when you are showing off your slime on Instagram. Others can’t feel the texture of your slime through the screen but they can ooh and aah at the way you see the slime catches the light. Color changing slime is really interesting to play with. The color comes from thermochromic pigment, which changes color with temperature. So mix one of these color changing pigment powders and alternate between heating it up (by stretching it vigorously or placing it under a lamp) and cooling it back down.

Cabochons are the charms of slime mixins. They are flat beads that you can mix in slime. They are made from resins, plastic or polymer clay that are usually painted which means the resulting slime is not just crunchy, it’s colorful too. Many of the cabochons, like you see above, are shaped in mini desserts that could include cupcakes, donuts, hamburgers, strawberries and cakes but you can even find tiny coffee mugs, butterflies or leaves. You can stick them into your slime when you finish mixing the ingredients together.
What could be more fun than playing with snow? You might have a little artificial snow left from last Christmas’s crafts shopping. Rather than throw it out, be creative and use it as an ingredient for your slime projects. Fake snow is shimmery and very light-weight, which means you get to create a light and fluffy slime and it only takes just a few minutes to whip up. It maintains the stretchiness of the slime without overwhelming the original texture of the slime.
