Modelling & Mosaics

Get ready to create your next modelling or mosaic masterpiece with these marvelous ideas!

  • All you really need is a bit of creativity to work with clay, decide on a subject and mould away!
  • Step 1Although you can use your hands to mould the clay, modelling tools also help to get into tight spots and refine features a bit more
  • Step 2Crayola® Model Magic® is ideal for mixing and experimenting with colours. Mix red, blue and yellow clay to make all the colours in the rainbow!! Alternatively, make your model from white clay and once dry, colour with markers or paint!
  • Step 3Before you start your modelling, decide what purpose you want your model to serve because there are two types of clay: Air Drying and Non-hardening.
  • Step 4There are two types of air drying clays, one becomes very light and has a texture like paper once dry (Paper Magiclay™ & Crayola® Model Magic®) others are heavy, can be painted and varnished for decoration (DAS® Clay). Store air hardening clays in an air tight container so they don’t dry out before they are used.
  • Step 5Non-hardening clays allow you to sculpt over and over again.
