    Mold Crayola Model Magic® around the ball of the clothespin to make a head. Roll small balls to make eyes, nose, and mouth.

    Think about the hair color and style of the person you are creating. Roll thin snakes and press on for long hair. Press on very small balls for curly hair. Press flat pieces on the head for short hair.

    Press Model Magic colors around the clothespin and chenille stems to create a shirt. Roll and press on tiny balls for buttons.

    Flatten Model Magic compound into pants or a skirt. Wrap around the lower half of the clothespin.

    Roll large balls for shoes. Press on the bottom of the clothespin. Adjust the size of the shoes so the figure can stand. Air-dry your figure. Model Magic dries to the touch overnight and dries completely in 2 to 3 days.
