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.
Regardless of the recipe you are trying to achieve, how many ingredients you mix up for your slime, the process or the outcome, there’s no need to feel like there is a right way to make your slime. It doesn’t have to be perfect. You only need the pop, color, fluff, shimmer or crunch that works for your specific goal. You might be a trendsetter by coming up with the next genre of slime so be creative and make sure to share your slime with us! Tag your creation on Instagram with @colormyslime!
