Create a hospitable feline of Model Magic® in the Japanese style. Discover the tradition behind this appealing figurine that welcomes guests.
Do you like to eat in Japanese restaurants? You may have noticed in stores or restaurants owned by Japanese people a statue of a cat waving you to come inside. Maneki Neko is the name of this welcoming cat. The figure has been a popular sentinel for more than 200 years.
Roll a large handful of white Crayola Model Magic into a ball and shape it into an upright cat's body. Attach two short coils to the body for back legs. Attach another coil as a front leg to help balance the cat. Shape a fourth coil into the raised front leg with bent paw. Air dry 24 hours.
With Crayola Fine Line Markers, draw the cat's yellow eyes, red ears, and whiskers, claws, and perhaps brown and black spots. Add a colorful collar.
Sometimes the welcoming cat holds gold or silver coins in its front paw. Use Crayola Glitter Glue to add the sparkling gold or silver highlights. Air dry.
Place your Maneki Neko on a windowsill or shelf where people enter your house or room. Your little ambassador will welcome your company.
