Mage Wars: Beastmaster's Pet
Should the water be boiling hot, or just hot?
How long would you leave it submerged in both the hot and cold water?
It should be very hot - probably too hot to touch. You need to submerge it for only a few seconds. When you take it out change its shape straight away. Even if you don't use cold water, it will go hard again within a minute or two.
