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