Jelly foam is the primary ingredient in the creation of fluffy slime. Slimers have termed slime mixed with foam chunks as “floam”. You might have had a slimy bizarre toy when you were younger that you used to squish and squeeze–we’re talking about something like that. Mixing foam in slime is barely a new trend in the world of slime. The tiny white chunks make it interesting to listen to the sounds produced when you squish it. You can stretch the floam into some form of spider web or make it into a ball and bounce it. One popular slime birthed from the floam trend is bubble gum slime. This is typically a light pink slime with several ripped up foam cubes, which gives off the appearance of chewed up bubble gum.
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.
Not so many slimers use plastic buttons. But when we think about it further, they make for amazing, easily accessible and affordable slime accessories. You could use buttons from clothes you don’t put on anymore or you could opt for buying a jar of buttons to use for your next slime project. Vary the sizes and colors to create even more attractive slimes. Candy buttons can create an even prettier crunchy sludge. You can use small buttons that are not so bulky, so you won’t have to worry about overwhelming the slime.
