What state of matter is silly putty?
Silly putty is a very tricky state of matter that has the definitions of two states of matter: solid and liquid. The definition of a liquid is that it takes the shape of the container that it is in, the atoms are loose within the matter, and they flow easily. Solids have tightly packed atoms in the matter, keeps it shape - no matter what container it is in, so it has a certain size or shape (though you can change the shape of solid matter). Silly putty has a in-between atom spacing within it, it isn't just going to stay there, it can move a little. When given time, silly putty can take the shape of the container it is in, but does not flow easily. You can split apart the substance that is silly putty. The boiling point of silly putty has the same freezing point as water - freezing - 0oC, boiling point - 100oC. -kos

Asked in Toys
Does silly putty harden?
No, it does not harden! It is always playable, even if you forget it on your desktop. The only way to harden silly putty would be to expose it to extremely cold temperatures. For example, Silly Putty hardens when put into liquid Nitrogen. It will harden the putty, but it will regain its texture as soon as it warms up.
