Invent your own species of butterfly, moth, or other insect. Or make models of your favorites! All you need is Crayola Model Magic® compound and your imagination to make tiny details on your own winged creatures!
Begin with the wings. Roll two equal-size Crayola Model Magic® balls. Flatten them to be thin, identical wings. To give them dimension, drape the wings over crumpled newspaper and leave it to air-dry for about 2 to 3 days.
To make the body, use a thick coil or a series of different-sized Model Magic balls. Make the body slightly longer than the area where it will attach to the wings.
Decorate! Real butterflies have distinctive wing designs. Look at pictures or make your very own species! To make designs the same size on both wings, start with two equal Model Magic balls and shape them exactly the same. You can easily make stripes with coils that are rolled from the same size balls! Attach the wings to the body.
Add Model Magic antennae on the head, a face, or more designs. To add details, use Crayola Glitter Glue to outline some of the shapes. Or shape tiny dots or lines to make your butterfly really fancy.
Model Magic® dries to the touch overnight and dries completely in 2 to 3 days. You could suspend it from your wall or ceiling with string, or make a habitat for it to live in!
