    Press on small balls of Model Magic® compound. Inside them, place tiny circles of Model Magic to make the characteristic "rosette" (the name for a leopard’s flower-shaped spots). Press to flatten them against the surface. Air-dry your cup before filling with markers. Model Magic dries to the touch overnight and dries completely in 2 to 3 days.
