Target properties

After successful cast target becomes rubbery, which is different from rubber (one can't use rubbery knife as a component to the spell):

It seems to be fighting to maintain its rigidity, occasionally going completely
limp and floppy, before regaining a more solid form.  A pungent smell of burnt
rubber wafts from it.

After some amount of time the target restores its condition with message

You feel your rapier regain its solid texture beneath your fingers.
