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.

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.
