Over the past week or so, I've been using Model Magic with my elementary students. I couldn't resist making a few things myself including the three monsters and elephant above (yes, the elephant is wearing a fez). I had kind of forgotten how much I love working in 3D. Although I work primarily with drawing and painting materials, I do find a lot of satisfaction working in three-dimensions. My foray with my students made me want to create some things in a bit more durable material. So, I went out and bought some polymer clay, and made the four monsters below. I've never worked with polymer clay, so there's bit of learning curve, but I'm pretty happy with the results. I'm looking forward to making more.
