DIY COLOR-CHANGING Fruit Slime!! Easy Summer DIY & Slime Hacks!


Hi guys and welcome back to Maqaroon I’m Joanna and in this video we’ll be making two awesome color changing slimes, along with cute custom containers The first one is a watermelon slime, which starts off white and it ripens into a red color before your very eyes The second one is an orange slime that turns into lemon slime with body heat If you love making or selling slimes then please make sure you’re subscribed to Maqaroon and Cute Life Hacks I’ve recently just make a huge discovery that literally changes everything we knew about making slime I’ll be sharing what I found out in two detailed tutorials over the next few weeks so hit that bell button as well, if you want to be the first person to know what it is but in the meantime, let’s go back to this fun, classical slime recipe and make some color changing fruit putties These fruit containers are inspired by the lip balm pots from this video here This is a really easy method to create adorable packaging for your makeup or slimes First, chew the end of a toothpick slightly, so it resembles a tiny brush Then, place on white nail polish onto scrap card and begin drawing a circle around the edge of the lid I find it’s much easier if you use tiny dots and then join them up rather than trying to draw straight lines the dotting method also looks more realistic since real oranges are slightly fuzzy on the inside If you make a mistake, then you can simply use the other side of the toothpick to scrap off the paint and depending on what sort of nail polish you use you might have to go over the lines two or three times until they’re fully opaque. Simply divide the top into eight sections, and your citrus fruit lid is ready! So for this slime, I’m going to be using thermal activated color pigments. I bought this from solarcolordust.com, and have included all the links below. This one is cold activated, which means it’s orange at lower temperatures and yellow when it warms up. Of course, it’s perfectly fine to skip this part, and just use food coloring, pastel dust, or whatever you have at home. You’ll still get a really cute fruit slime Just without the color changing effect The recipe for this is also really easy. First, squeeze two peel off face masks into a bowl. This is the same as 16ml or 1 large tbsp. Then, add two pinches of baking soda. Now, add some thermal pigment, and I’m pretty sure I used a bit too much here, since the color is super concentrated. If you sell your slimes, and you’re trying to cut costs, then, you can mix a tiny bit of powder inside, and then place inside the freezer for a while to see if the color changes Keep doing this until you find the minimum amount needed. to the produce the desired effect Once everything is mixed inside, add one or two tsp. of water. One spoonful gives you a putty like slime, and two spoonfuls gives you a more slippery slime. And lastly, add 1/2 tsp. of contact lens solution. Now, stir everything thoroughly, and you should see the slime start coming together right away. There shouldn’t be anything left on the bowl or spoon. If it still feels too sticky on skin, then you can wet your fingers with a tiny bit of contact lens solution, and rub this inside. Slime also becomes firmer when you play with it, so you can simply squish it around a bit until you have the the right constancy. Now you can place everything inside your container. Since the slime is cold activated, I’m going to leave in the freezer for about a minute. Make sure you don’t forget it, otherwise you’ll end up freezing your slime solid. So here’s the cooled down version, and it’s turned into a really intense blood orange color. When you press on it, your body heat changes it back to yellow, which is really fun to play with. This effect can be repeated as often as you like And, by the way, these face mask slimes hold up really well. I use almost exactly the same recipe for my DIY highlighter putty a month ago, and those are still perfectly soft and stretchy. Now, let’s make the watermelon version! I’ve also placed links down below where you can get these lip balm containers in bulk very cheaply. I’m using nail polish here, but acrylic paint works perfectly fine, as well. If you decide to use paint, then you should also mix Some white PVA glue inside, which helps to prevent it from chipping or chipping when drying. Begin by painting the side of the container green. You should apply several coats, and make sure each layer is fully dry before adding the next. I used three coats of nail polish to get this effect. Just like before, take a toothpick and chew the end slightly to make a brush. Then start dotting in white paint or nail polish to make a circle. Try to work 1 or 2mm from the edge so you can still see some green. And lastly, take some black nail polish, and add in the seeds. I’m working in a circular shape, which keeps everything looking neat. As you can see here, I added the dots in the same places where we painted the lines on the orange. Then, I finished up with four more seeds in the center. If you’re happy with how everything looks, then you can go back and make the seeds slightly larger or more teardrop shaped. Leave this to dry, and we can start making the slime. The recipe is exactly the same as before. Two face masks, two pinches of baking soda, one tsp of water, and some UV powder. This time, the color change will be activated by UV light or sunlight I got this pigment from Sophie & Toffee as part of the elves subscription box. Shake the powder inside, and mix well until everything is dissolved. Now, add half a tsp of contact lens solution, and stir until the slime comes together. This slime picks up dirt easily, so make sure your hands are completely clean when making it. If you poke or play with this against the table, then also check that everything is free of dust. Now, your watermelon pot should be fully dry, so you can place your slime inside. This looks pretty unspectacular right now, but just wait until you bring it into the sunlight. I was amazed at how fast the color changes, and I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of watching this. I’m playing with this in direct sunlight, so the color pigment reacts very strongly. You can also experiment with different levels of UV light, such as using it behind a window to create different shades of pink. And just like the thermal pigment, this effect is reversible, so you can play with it as often as you like. If you hold your hands over it or take it out of the sun, then the slime turns back to white very quickly. To get this shot, I held the slime out the window, and ran back to my desk as fast as possible, so I could film the pink color before it faded. Depending on where you live in the world, I think the UV pigment is a good project for summer, and the thermal pigment is a good DIY for winter. This one looks really satisfying when it starts to change color in layers. Both methods would also look great with a kiwi design and green slime or a grapefruit design and pink slime. You can also paint emojis instead of fruit, like I did in my lip balm tutorial. I really hope you enjoyed this DIY, and please remember to subscribe so you don’t miss out on my epic new slime tutorial coming very soon. You can also find me on Instagram under under my username Maqaroon, and if you made anything using my videos, then I’d love to see them under my hashtag. By the way, I’m currently in the process of adjusting content on both channels, so that they’re more similar to each other. It’s almost been four years since I’ve started YouTube, and I really want to make sure that my editing style and videos stay up to date, rather than sticking to a fixed format simply because I’ve always done so. A HUGE thank you to all of those people who have been here since the beginning. I always welcome constructive feedback, including those from people who wanted to see more needle felt and clay. The truth is, when I started Youtube, there weren’t a lot of videos on those topics. However now, there are tons of channels doing felting, clay, or dollhouses, and I feel that, for me, it’s just not very innovative anymore. My passion has always been finding new ideas that have never been done on YouTube and then sharing that with you guys first. So, I hope most of you are still excited to see what there is to come on this channel, and I look forward to seeing you in my next video. Bye! ❤︎ *music*
