Charge Glow in the Dark Thinking Putty by exposing it to a light source and it will radiate a bright green in darkness.
Intensify the fun and record an object's silhouette onto the surface of the putty. Or use the optional black light keychain to draw, doodle, and write with light on the putty's exterior.
Glow in the Dark Putty will also provide hours of "daylight" fun as it can be stretched, pulled, molded, bounced, and even ripped in half (and put back together again, of course!). Made in the USA.
At Vat19, we're big fans of putty. Like other cool fidgeting devices, putty just never seems to get boring. In the case of Glow in the Dark Putty, the fun is amplified when the lights are turned off.
Because putty is a slow-moving liquid (precisely it's a non-Newtonian fluid), it is blessed with some unique physical characteristics. Simply put, the rate at which force is applied to the putty directly corresponds to how it behaves in response to that force.
When the force is applied slowly, the putty will act more like a liquid. When the force is applied rapidly, putty behaves like a solid. So, when pulled slowly, the putty will stretch. However, when dropped or tossed, the putty acts like a solid and bounces. And when a shearing force is applied quickly, the putty will rip.
So, charge up your putty (simply hold it next to a bright lightbulb for a few seconds), and enjoy this non-Newtonian fluid as it glows in the dark!
Imprint silhouettes onto the surface of your Glow in the Dark Putty by resting an item on it while charging it with a bright light. When you remove the item, a detailed silhouette remains. That's fun, y'all.
Glow in the Dark Putty glows when "charged" by a light source. As it turns out, black light works great for this purpose. And with our keychain-sized black light keychain, you can draw, scribble, or write messages onto the putty.
Warm up to Heat-Sensitive Hypercolor Putty, a Thinking Putty that changes hues using just your body heat.
From Crazy Aaron, the deranged genius who brought you Magnetic, Glass, Illusions, UV and Glowing putty, comes a whole new way to play with some of the coolest stuff on earth.
Just holding the putty for a little while turns it a totally new color. Squeeze the Sunburst putty to change it from orange to yellow or knead the Twilight putty to get it to morph from purple to blue.
Don’t worry; Heat-Sensitive Hypercolor Putty still sculpts, tears, bounces, stretches, and even shatters like other Thinking Putties. So go ahead and play with it, but don’t be surprised when you’re holding a totally new color of putty in your hand.

|·||Is Thinking Putty safe for use by children?|

Although Thinking Putty is completely inert, non-toxic, and safe, it may present a choking hazard to children if placed in the mouth or if a child attempts to swallow the product.

|·||There is Thinking Putty stuck in my hair or on my skin! How can I remove it?|
|Don't panic! We can help you get your Thinking Putty out of your hair or off of your skin. We recommend using Rubbing Alcohol (the greatest precent Isopropyl Alcohol you can find--99% is ideal) from the drugstore. It is the easiest way to remove Thinking Putty from natural fabrics and hair. Some people will purchase antiseptic ethyl rubbing alcohol. This is NOT effective. More information and videos can be found here.|
|·||There is Thinking Putty stuck in my shirt/pants/rug/sofa/sheets! How can I remove it?|
|Use Rubbing Alcohol (the greatest precent Isopropyl Alcohol you can find--99% is ideal) from the drugstore. It is the easiest way to remove Thinking Putty from natural fabrics and hair. Some people will purchase antiseptic ethyl rubbing alcohol. This is NOT effective.
Do a spot test first on a non-visible part of fabric to ensure the alcohol will not cause further damage. Liberally pour the rubbing alcohol onto the affected area. The Thinking Putty should liquefy and become easily removed with a paper or cloth towel.
If your Thinking Putty has adhered to a synthetic fabric such as nylon or polyester, Rubbing Alcohol may damage the fabric. Try WD-40 to loosen the Thinking Putty and remove it from the surface.
If all else fails, take your garment to the dry cleaners and let them know your stain is silicone based.
For more detailed information see here. Videos about removing Thinking Putty can be found here
|·||Can Thinking Putty stain fabric?|
|Unfortunately, the answer is yes. Thinking Putty is best left in its tin when it is not being used. But if it does stay on fabric for an extended period of time, once the putty itself is removed (see above), certain pigments in different colors of Thinking Putty can stain certain fabrics. As with any product, we suggest watching children when they are playing with it to make sure it is not left on fabric for a long period of time. Feel free to contact us for additional help.|
|·||Does Thinking Putty dry out?|
|No way! Thinking Putty is silicone based, not clay or earth based like other modeling compounds. Thinking Putty will never dry out or crumble.
The only reason to keep it in a closed container is to offer protection from dirt, dust, and hair that may otherwise accumulate.
|·||Is Thinking Putty like Gak™, Floam™, Noise Putty™, Slime™, Mars Mud™, or Goo?|
|Absolutely not! Thinking Putty is in a class of its own - with its own unique physical properties and amazing colors.
Thinking Putty does not leave a sticky residue on your hands. You won't feel like you need to "wash up" after playing with Thinking Putty.
Thinking Putty is stretchy but bounces like a ball! It tears like paper, and can shatter like ceramic. Super Magnetic Thinking Putty can also be attracted to a magnet and our Hypercolors canchange color with the heat from your hand.
Unlike all other products, Thinking Putty comes in extra large handfuls and a rainbow of really awesome colors!
|·||Can I bring Thinking Putty through airport security or onto an airplane?|
|Yes. Thinking Putty may appear superficially like the plastic explosives you see on TV, but the similarities end there. Thinking Putty will not appear as an explosive to either color X-ray or sniffer machines. It is neither a liquid nor a gel and is not subject to the criteria governing those objects. That said, security screeners have absolute personal discretion in exercising their jobs. They can confiscate anything they like regardless of the posted rules.
If you ever have your Thinking Putty confiscated, just let me knowand I'll make things right.

|·||What is this stuff? Where did it come from?|
|During World War II, America's supplies of natural rubber were scarce. The Japanese had occupied many areas in the South Pacific where rubber trees are found.
Thinking Putty and many other silicone products were developed during World War II as American industries searched for rubber substitutes that could be used in place of natural rubber tires, gaskets, and seals.
In 1936, at the Mellon Institute of Industrial Research, Dr. Earl Warrick began experimenting with "organosilicon" chemistry - combining silicon (think: sand, glass, computer chips) with carbon (think: you and me, charcoal, and fossil fuels).
In 1943, he left the institute to join the newly formed Dow Corning Corporation. His research was refocused to help the war effort by developing a synthetic rubber substitute. Although he failed to produce a suitable rubber before the end of the war, one result of his experiments was a Silicone Bouncing Putty (the primary ingredient in Thinking Putty).
Although it had no industrial use, he kept some around - it made a nifty toy!
