Press cool textures into Crayola® Model Magic. Cut creative shapes. This multilayered wallhanging will WOW everyone!
Ask students in the class if they have ever noticed wallhangings displayed. How are they used? As decoration? As historical rememberences? Provide a wide variety of Internet photographs of wallhangings. Ask students to consider how geometric shapes are used in these art pieces. Invite children to experiment with creative modeling techniques to design a unique wallhanging using Crayola Model Magic.
Instruct students to cover their work area with recycled newpaper. Provide them with Model Magic. Students begin this process by rolling out bright colors of modeling compound into various thicknesses. With plastic dinnerware, incise designs in the surface. Cut Model Magic into different shapes. Remove shapes, such as triangles from the center of pieces, and make holes in those shapes. For uneven edges, tear away sections.
Layer pieces on a thick base of Model Magic. Overlap some of them to create rough or flowing terrain. Bend shapes to mold them to each other. What visual effects can you create by layering different colors?
Find interesting objects to create textured impressions in the Model Magic. Press patterns, varying how deep and close together these are pressed.
Make small balls, ovals, or snakes with colored Model Magic. Press or flatten them on to the construction. Add texture to them, too.
While the Model Magic is still damp, poke a hole in the base with a drinking straw. Or embed a large paper clip in the back. Air-dry for at least 24 hours. Thick pieces may take longer to dry completely.
Display student artwork prominently in the classroom. Provide an opportunity for students to gather informally and discuss their final products.
