It’ll Be Like Putty In Your Hands It’s called Thinking Putty because while you do whatever you want with it, your brain relaxes and opens up to all kinds of creative thinking. Thinking Putty Hypercolor Clay is no ordinary clay In addition to its almost magical ability to change colour, the clay also has a variety of characteristics depending on how you manage it. You can pull and stretch it out, but you can also cut it into two. You can bounce it, but it will get crushed if you slam it too hard. And you can shape it into anything you want, but if you don’t touch it, it will turn back into a shapeless puddle of clay.
