Anime in Action

Anime in Action craft

Who is an anime fan? Make a figure of yourself—or a friend—doing something fun like dancing or running!

  • 1.

    Twist a few chenille stems together to make an armature shaped like a human torso. Leave one end sticking up. Shape a round Crayola Model Magic® head at the top of the armature. Add eyes, hair blowing in the wind, and a small mouth—all in anime style.

  • 2.

    Attach a chenille stem on the torso under the head by twisting to form a T shape. This forms the arms and shoulders. Build up your torso and arms by pressing Model Magic onto the armature. Add hands. To make fingers, snip the ends of the hands with scissors.

  • 3.

    Attach two chenille sticks under the torso to form legs. Bend them to show the action! Shape funky jeans, a twirling skirt, or cool pants. Blue Magic compound is perfect for jeans! Add fun sneakers and shoelaces.

  • 4.

    Dress your figure with fashionable Model Magic clothing. Tie a scarf around the neck or on your head as a bandana. Add rings or bracelets. Model Magic® dries to the touch overnight and dries completely in 2 to 3 days.

  • 5.

    Your figure is ready to dance the night away!
