Presto Dots Penguin

Presto Dots Penguin craft

Create a "cool" penguin that stands out from the crowd. Model Magic® Presto Dots makes it easy!

  • 1.

    Let’s get started! Create a base for your penguin by gently pushing two foam balls onto either end of a short wooden dowel stick. When the foam balls have been connected, you should not be able to see the dowel. This will be the head and body of the penguin.

  • 2.

    Cover your bases! Press or roll a smooth layer of black Model Magic large enough to cover the head of the penguin. Press the Model Magic firmly around the head. Press or roll a smooth layer of white Model Magic large enough to cover the body of the penguin. Press the Model Magic firmly around the body. Smooth out any gaps so the base is completely covered.

  • 3.

    Dot, dot, dot. Roll out another layer of black Model Magic. Push the Presto Dot tool down into the Model Magic. When the tool can’t go any further, give your wrist a twist, tilt the tool back, and pull it up. Tap the bottom of the tool gently on the head of the penguin and pull your hand away to release the dot. The dot will stick to the surface. Repeat this process until the entire head of the penguin is covered in dots.

  • 4.

    Just wing it! Roll out two wings for the penguin and press them onto the body. Model Magic that is fresh from the package will stick to itself.

  • 5.

    Take a stand. Roll out orange Model Magic to create two feet for the penguin. Gently press the penguin onto its feet. If desired, cover the feet in dots using the same technique above.

    It’s all in the details. Use additional bits of Model Magic to make eyes, a beak and other details to bring your penguin to life. Allow the Model Magic to air dry.
