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.
I use this in many of my slimes (fleurybearcreation.etsy.com) and I have to say it is hands-down my favorite pigment. I have made many videos showing the mixing of this pigment (@limeryslimery) because it is THAT BEAUTIFUL!!!! You can see the rose and with the gold it is sooooooo beautiful . . . you need to get your hands on these!!!! Love them so so so much.
Colored beads are an excellent addition to your slime. Not only do they help create a visually appealing slimes, they are also an easy way to make it crunchy. For those of you who haven’t heard, “crunchy slime” is a whole genre of slime and there are even Instagram accounts dedicated to making the best “crunchy slime”. You can find different size and colored beads for all your different needs and to help produce the crackling sound you’re shooting for. You could go with a single-colored bead slime or a multi-colored one depending on your preference. The shine from the beads can help prevent lackluster slime and its inclusion guarantees a highly textured slime.
