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.
Think about nails scratching a chalkboard for one second. Are you flinching? One study found that this sound literally accelerated the participants’ stress levels, quickening heart rates, heightening blood pressure and even altering the skin’s electrical conductivity. In the study, the scientists discovered that—when stimulated with this screeching sound, the auditory cortex interacted with the amygdala, which controls responses related to fear and emotions.
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!
