Here is how India’s very first adult mom slimer is working her business on Instagram. She does have an online store from where you can purchase her products.
Hi, thanks a lot for mentioning BlimeySlimes in your blogs.
I’m Ayesha, I stay in Hyderabad. I’m an architect by profession but I love to dabble in crafts. Right now I’m into making slimes and run an online slime business.
Slime is this squishy and gooey substance which is made from glue.
The colours and add-ons like glitter, sequins in slime are very pleasing to look at. Slime videos went viral because a lot of people like how they sound when poked, stretched and squished.
Slimes are a huge trend in the west. The trend arrived in India about 3 years ago .
A considerable amount of the slime businesses run outside India are run by teenagers. In India, I’m the first adult to start a slime business.
I love making clear slimes compared to the other glue slimes.
Can you tell us about your products?
Slimes are glue based products. There’s an addition of borax which ‘forms’ the slime and thus the main ingredients of slime are glue and borax. I sell my products online.
Usually, I have
Why did you get started with the Slime business? How long have you been at it?
I missed doing business in crafts and one fine day
I gave it a try and after a month of trial and error, I got a recipe that suited me best and I got started.
Do you have a daily schedule? Do you have someone to help you? How many hours per day do you spend on your business
Mostly I work at night when the kids are asleep and I have the house to myself. I don’t work daily but weekly I would say I work about 8 to 10 hrs. I work on new slime ideas, shooting videos, posting them on different platforms, preparing for orders etc.
What motivates you to keep working on it?
Oh yes, I have had my share of ‘I’m quitting’ days. And then there are days where I feel like making a million slimes. I work mostly via social media, Instagram to be more precise. The kind words that kids message me regarding how much fun they had after receiving their slimes, that definitely makes me want to keep going.
How do you balance Family and Business?
It’s pretty tough, no doubt. Especially since my kids are very interested in slimes, it’s tough to do any work while they are awake.
My work is divided into stages – slime making, making videos, uploading on
If you were to start again what would you do
Ah, I’m happy with how things are at the moment. It’s a slow but steady pace.

How do you price your Slimes?
For pricing my products, I try to use the formula which I used during my charm making. Google helped me for this ‘formula’ which includes amount of time spent on each product.
How much money do you spend on yourSlime business? What was your initial investment?
I love crafts and me in a stationery store is like a child in a candy store. So I end up purchasing a lot of items especially those which catch my eye.
Initial investment (including time, time is precious ) was considerable since I had to run around finding the right sources for a lot of supplies.
Any tips for people getting started with Slime business
One thing I would like to emphasize on would be hygiene while making slime and taking take of oneself after playing with slime since it contains borax and borax can make the skin dry. Some people can also be allergic to borax.
Any other thoughts?
