Not too many know that there are over 900 types of Slimes in the world today: Fluffy Slime, Unicorn Slime, Edible Slime, Pink Slime are just a few of many. In the science community, slimes are seen as a Non-Newtonian fluid, meaning that it has dual characteristics: neither solid nor liquid.

According to Isaac Newton, conversational liquids like water are easily affected by pressure and temperature; this is unlike slimes, thus, the name “a Non-Newtonian fluid.” Okay, that’s enough; let’s shift a little bit from science. Slimes are often attributed to children’s growth; it plays a role in their psychological development, so children psychologists often deploy it while measuring a child’s IQ level.

Fluffy slime is your regular kind of slime; the difference is that it is made with shaving cream. How good the texture depends on the amount of shaving cream you have added; the more you add, the fuzzier it becomes. But if you wish to try out a homemade slime such as this, we advise that you experiment with some little amount to see how it will turn out.

Like we have earlier stated, slimes differ, and as they vary, so are their characteristics which also contribute to their popularity. This article will show you how to make your slime in five simple steps. Ready? Let’s go!

Now, it is time to let it settle. Once it sticks together, remove it from the container and stretch it for like 3 minutes with your hands. At first, it won’t feel sticky, but it becomes more pliable over time.

Tips and Recommendations

You have to understand that in as much as Fluffy slimes can be attractive, they can be dangerous at the same time. These things are made from chemicals and materials that are not healthy for human consumption. This is why you have to look out for your kids when they play with these things, to avoid chewing them in your absence.

Finally, you might as well add coloring to your slime to get your preferred color. Also, in most cases, some may want to add scenting agents to enhance the smell. We hope that was useful? Good luck with the process.
