CIY Staff Tips

  • We mixed white, yellow, and blue acrylic paint to make green. Choose any color you desire for the lid.
  • Make multiple storage jars with other Model Magic critters on top—the options are endless!
  • Beyond markers, use Crayola Glitter Glue to add shimmery accents to Model Magic.
