Everyone knows what food coloring does to food – so you can easily imagine what it would do to slime. Food color makes an easy addition to slime, a couple drops and some mixing and you’re done. You can play with the amount of food coloring added in order to achieve a lighter or darker effect. The downside of food coloring is that there are limited colors available and the resulting color of your slime may not be unique.
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!
Poly pellets fill for slushie, crunchy slime or–as slimers call it–“fishbowl slime” is a popular ingredient for slime. The clear and transparent beads makes slime highly reflective and shiny. Poly pellets are weighted beads that are commonly used for stuffing bean bags or stuffed animals. The smooth edges and oval contour have a pleasant massaging sensation when you run fishbowl slime through your fingers. Since it is weighted, it can also provide some structure to the slime so that your creation can somewhat maintain a desired shape. While they are a bit bulky, poly pellets are easier to integrate into slime than round glass beads.
