Like many kids I used to play with Silly Putty. One of my favourite things to do was to pretty it against some paper like comics and capture a reverse image on the putty. I lost the putty for quite a while near the gully in my backyard in Kitimat but actually found it again months later (maybe even a year later). I returned to my old tricks with it but gradually became disinterested as I realized that the reason for the reverse image was that the putty absorbed ink from the comics, causing the original image to fade. I think I eventually misfiled it again and this time didn’t worry too much about its fate.
