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.
Sunkissed Yellow Slime Pigment Powder
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.
Poof balls are not so different from foam cubes. This is another easy way to make crunchy slime with a lot of texture. Try different size poofs to get the texture you want. Since they are light, stretching the slime will still be able to hold them in place without weighing your concoction down. Vary the colors of the balls to make it even more appealing to the eyes. Be sure to start with less poof balls than what you need and then keep adding them in because it will be very difficult to remove them later.
