Regular plasticine applications are considered the simplest kind of arts and crafts, which becomes available to kids aged 1-3 years. Of course, you will need constant supervision of your mother while the child is sculpting his masterpiece. The word "application" itself is translated into Russian as "attachment", that is, they take parts from various materials and impose them on a prepared base. Plasticine is good because it does not limit the child's imagination to a predetermined shape and allows you to create not only three-dimensional figures, but also planar compositions. There are several techniques for working with this material, each with its own benefits.
Drawing with plasticine - the basics
Most often, experts suggest trying the reverse application technique. This method also has several options:
- drawings in transparent caps left over from dairy products;
- painterly smearingcolors;
- contour work with balls.
Thinking about how to make an application from plasticine, you need to prepare everything you need in advance. Firstly, the modeling material must be fresh, soft and safe for children. Secondly, you need to take care of the basis for the future picture. It can be ordinary thick cardboard, transparent plastic, plywood or modeling board. You will also need a permanent marker to apply the design, a glass of clean water, stacks or toothpicks, and wipes to wipe your hands. Plasticine applications on cardboard are the most affordable way to create a picture for the little ones. Attention: only the parent should work with a permanent marker, as it will not wash off the things or clothes of the baby if it gets dirty in the process.
Plasticine Applications: Smearing Technique
We apply the future drawing on cardboard or a transparent cover. You can invent it yourself, cut it out or translate it from a children's coloring book. In advance, bright, pleasant colors for the psyche are chosen with the child and, pronouncing their name, they are mixed into small balls. The marker will dry in 2-3 minutes, after which it will be possible to start creating a picture:
- the child applies the prepared plasticine balls, trying not to go beyond the boundaries of the contour and flattens them with his fingers;
- the thickness of the layer should be somewhere around 2-3 mm, so that the pattern looks like a single whole;
- When the entire surface is filled, parents can lightly roll the product on top to get a more even image. Everything is workready.
For kids, interesting transparent caps are selected, and older children can make applications from plasticine on photo frames or plexiglass.
Painting without marker outline
It is possible to make applications from plasticine without a bold black outline on glass or plastic. To do this, the pattern is cut out and fixed on the front (not working) side of the product using paper tape that does not leave greasy marks. The kid will have to lay out the outline himself from thin flagella, and the space inside is filled with plasticine balls or sausages. There is a little trick here - first you should fill in small details, for example, eyes or flowers in a clearing, and then the main background. When work with plasticine is completed, it is worth gluing an ordinary napkin or thicker paper from the inside with PVA glue.
