Create large shapes by wrapping Model Magic® around simple objects, such as cardboard tubes, paper towel rolls, straws, or craft sticks.

Create a diorama by molding shapes from Model Magic® and gluing them to the inside of a shoe box.

To add more color to your creations, you can paint dry Model Magic®. Be sure that the Model Magic® has dried for at least 24 hours. Crayola® Watercolors or Washable Kids Paint work well.

Wrap Model Magic® around a plastic cup or empty plastic bottle. Allow to dry overnight. Decorate with markers, paint, and attached materials.

Roll small balls of Model Magic® and while moist, use a straw to poke holes all the way through. Allow to dry overnight. String ribbon or yarn through the holes and make a necklace or bracelet.

Flatten Model Magic® and cut into small squares. Let squares dry. Arrange the squares into a pattern and glue them down onto a piece of heavy cardboard or on the top of a box.

Create Model Magic® shapes, such as abstract designs or animals. While moist press to surfaces that have different textures. (Only use surface that can be easily cleaned if any Model Magic® residue remains.) Let dry and glue to a piece of paper. Draw or paint a scene around the Model Magic shapes. For example, press bubble wrap into a Model Magic® fish and embellish with lace-textured sea shells.
