Create numbers with personality! Design Model Magic® phone numbers, birth dates, and zip codes.
Discuss how people communicate using number, works of art, and words formed with letters. Find examples of how personality can be reflected through shapes, colors, textures, and decorations.
Choose several descriptive words about your personality and interests. Then select a series of numerals that have personal significance, such as a birthday or telephone number.
With Crayola Model Magic, experiment with mixing colors that express those personal characteristics. Knead it a bit before beginning to work. Blend white and colored compound to create tints, or mix colors and black to make shades. Blend two primary colors (red, yellow, blue) together to produce a secondary hue (orange, green, violet). Create a marble effect by incompletely blending different colors.
Consider how shapes can also communicate personality. For example, uneven or rough shapes are different from tidy, geometric shapes. What shape conveys your personal characteristics?
Model the numerals by hand. Or roll out the Model Magic on a sheet of wax paper and cut the numeral shapes out with a craft stick. Add decorative items such as beads, ribbon, or natural materials to add texture and character to the numbers. Embed these in the Model Magic while it is still damp.
