One observant employee remarked it almost looks like a magnifying glass.

Eureka, a new trick was discovered! With a little patience you can turn your Liquid Glass Thinking Putty into a melting magnifying glass. Learn how to do it yourself with our easy to follow instructions below or press "play" on our video showing off the trick.
