A few months ago I was already doing a topic with master classes in modeling clay. And, of course, I tried several of them. My daughter and I enjoyed this activity so much that I decided to enrich my collection with new copies.
In my childhood I loved to sculpt something from plasticine. Remember, before it was necessary to warm it for a long time in your hands, knead it, and only after that it was possible to create something from it with difficulty. Now they make plasticine much softer, which greatly facilitates the work of children with it.
Introduce kids with clay can be already a year. Moreover, not with plasticine, as such, but with colored salt dough. It is done very simply: 200 grams of flour, 200 grams of salt and 125 ml of cold water are mixed in one container and tinted with any dye (I take paint for Easter eggs). For thin and small figures, you can add a tablespoon of PVA glue or starch.
Plasticine can sculpt not only animal figures, but also food or a picture. You can use plasticine to make a beautiful mosaic of cereals. To do this, just stick the grits on the plasticine base. Mosaic can be made with the help of vermicelli, beans or beads.
Kids love to paste jars of multi-colored plasticine. This produces a bright colorful vase. You can make different scales on a large surface. For example, forest, river and animals.
In this topic I have collected 30 master classes in modeling clay. The manufacture of each figure is shown in steps. Honestly, I didn’t think it was so easy to make plasticine. It is a pity that in my childhood there were no such instructions.
And you and your kids love to sculpt something from plasticine?
