I wish to tell you of something wonderful.

Putty is that wonderful thing.
Not like putty for patching up walls (though I am quite familiar with that since I tend to cut holes in the wall when I am upset.) I mean like silly putty, crazy aaron's thinking putty, or that stuff you get in the rock climbing section of REI to strengthen your hands.

I am an enormous fan of things with nice textures. Smooth erasers, round rocks that are almost matte, soft blankets, and such the like. I have also been known to stick my finger into a variety of food items and squish them, such as beans, steel cut oats, dry rice, egg yolks.
I also spend far too much time watching paint mixing videos.

But the most wonderful, squishiest, stretchiest, least messy thing my hands have come across is this putty:

I have several kinds. The iridescent stuff above,
and this heat sensitive stuff that's purple when it's cold and blue when its warm.

That was my loveliness for today.
What textures do you like? Do you spend a lot of time fiddling with things?


  1. I really like putty, too. Two Christmases ago my mom gave me and my sister each a tin of Crazy Aaron's Thinking Putty, and we still have them for fiddling. I'm the kind of person who always has to be doing something with my hands, so putty, kinetic sand, and things of the sorts are all very good for me.

  2. I made some glitter slime at my friend's house once! It's so fun. :) I love that heat sensitive putty! You should try making your own.

  3. (it's been a while, hello again!!)
    paint mixing videos are the greatest thing, i will never understand why they're so calming/entrancing but they're my favorite thing.
    BUT THAT IRIDESCENT PUTTY THOUGH i swear it looks like the entire milky way has been squished into that thing, its beautiful

  4. Simply scrumptious. Now I might have to buy some! :D

  5. ERMAGERD IT'S BEAUTIFUL!!! Where did you get that iridescent putty?!
