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.
When you buy slime for the first time in its natural form, you might find its smell unpleasant. Although it’s dependent on your ingredients, the scent is usually a plastic and glue fragrance, if you can imagine what that would smell like. Not particularly pleasant. Although note that some would describe the smell as soapy and actually prefer it. If you’re sensitive to smells, you may dislike playing with slime that produces a scent you aren’t fond of. In order to enjoy your experience with slime, you will need to scent it up. There’s a variety of scents that are popular among slime including bubblegum, chocolate, strawberry, cotton candy, peppermint and coconut, among others. These scents are produced by essential oils and will blend easily with slime.
Who doesn’t like glitter? If you’ going for shiny and sparkly, glitter is the way to go. While glitter glue was an older way of incorporating some sparkles to a slime, today’s slimers are using dry glitter as it creates room for more creativity since there are many more forms of dry glitter–from shaped flakes to thin glittery powders. Glitter is available in a wide range of colors. Whatever your recipe, you can always find the ideal glitter color to add some form of twinkle to your slime. Glitter slime can be used together with other slime add ins as well.
ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. What a long and confusing name! Even though it sounds like complicated doctor terminology to dress up something life-threatening, it’s actually something you and I may have unknowingly experienced (and enjoyed!).
I normally hate the color orange, and the only reason why I got this was because I was going to mix it with a few things and experiment. But, all on it’s own, this color is lovely! Like shiny Navel oranges, or a sunset. Needless to say, I haven’t mixed it with anything else. 🙂
