Winter White Slime Pigment Powder

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. 🙂

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.

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.
