How to describe the dry, drying, or solid state for such as blood?
Do people just say
blood dries or
the blood is dried?
I did a web search of "
blood solidifies", but it did not look like a correct usage.
I would like to understand both colloquial and formal usage of this description.
Another thing is that pudding does not dry out because when it solidifies, it ends in a gel-like, soft, and flexible state. How do I describe this solidifying and have-solidified state?
