Harden or soften (6)


I believe the answer is:


This clue is a double definition.

'harden' is the first definition.
('temper' can be a synonym of 'harden')

'soften' is the second definition.

'or' is the link.

(Other definitions for temper that I've seen before include "Toughen by gradually heating and cooling" , "Adjust" , "Mood or hardness of metal" , "Tendency to become angry easily" , "Harden with heat and water" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
