According to encyclopedia.com, “Slime is typically composed of tangled, long-chain polymer molecules. These polymer molecules can be thought of as spaghetti strands. When put together on a plate, the strands are mixed together making a tangled mess. If the strands are rubbed together, they line up and become smooth. This motion gives the mass it’s slimy, slippery feel”.
If you like the slimy, slippery feel of slime, be sure to visit Creator Faire host, Mermaid Slime 4U, to play with and learn how to make this tangled mess of long-chain polymer molecules into a smooth pile of fun.
12-year-old, Haven’s favorite perfectly aligned tangled mess is her Strawberry Frosting Slime because it’s soft and fun to play with. She started her slime-making business in July of 2017. Haven likes mermaids and really wanted a fun brand, hence her awesome business name, Mermaid Slime 4U.
When this 7th grader isn’t busy fulfilling orders from her Etsy shop, you can find her practicing gymnastics, dance or reading her favorite book, “Because of Winn Dixie”.
She says she is looking forward to teaching kids how to make slime and sharing her love for it at the Creator Faire on January 27.
If you simply can’t wait that long to experience this strange mixture of art and science, you can purchase a variety of different slimes from Haven’s Etsy shop under Mermaidslime4U or follow her often glittery work on Instagram at mermaid.slime4U.
