    Add features to each animal figure to make it unique. Some tips: EYES: Roll small Model Magic balls and press onto the head. Make eyes small or large, round or pointed, depending on the animal you imagine. NOSE: Roll, flatten, or poke holes in Model Magic to make a nose. MOUTH: Press a mouth into the head with modeling tools. EARS: Design ears for your critter. Press Model Magic flat for floppy ears. Squeeze the compound to make ears that are long or pointed. Press on the head near the eyes. LEGS: Roll thick Model Magic snakes between palms or on a table. Use a craft stick or plastic knife to cut same-size sections for legs. Press on the body. TAIL: Roll a thin Model Magic snake. Cut it to size. Arrange it for a curly tail. Or make a bushy tail by pressing a plastic comb into a long piece of modeling compound. APPEARANCE: Press small Model Magic balls onto the head and body for a spotted critter. Roll thin snakes and press on for a striped animal. Push Model Magic through a garlic press and press on the creature to make it look furry. Wash the garlic press in warm soapy water when you are finished.

    Model Magic dries to the touch overnight and dries completely in 2 to 3 days, which is plenty of time to create more critters and a Critter Clubhouse for them to play in!
