Two possible configurations for gelled materials based on crystallizable droplets: partial coalescence and jamming. When partial coalescence occurs, the elasticity arises from the network of interconnected droplets, whereas in the jamming process the elasticity is due to the fact that the individual droplets cannot slide one against each other because of surface roughness (flow hindering).
