Almost all children (and some adults) love to sculpt various figures and figurines from plasticine and polymer clay. It is especially interesting to create different techniques with your own hands - airplanes, cars and rockets. In this article you will learn how to quickly and easily make a plane of plasticine or plastic. And first, let's talk a little about materials and tools.
Materials and tools
Before you start buying materials, decide which plane of clay or clay you will model. If you want to take your child, then buy the usual colored clay for children's creativity. And if you want a durable figure, then stock up on polymer clay. In addition, if you sculpt a large plane of clay, then take another foil, wire and the base for the wings. Of the tools you'll need mostly stacks and knives.
How to make a plane with a child from plasticine
Blind the plane with a child is easy! The main thing is to stock up more material. Blind first the body of the aircraft. From above in shape, it should resemble a carrot. Then roll a piece of clay into a layer of 5-6 millimeters and cut out the wings, fenders and tail of the aircraft. All this gently stick to the body of the aircraft. In addition, from the white and black clay make eyes and mouth. But the chassis will not work. Plasticine is a rather soft material, and therefore can bend under the weight that an airplane has. Plasticine sculpting is a very interesting activity!
When you sculpt with children, then use stacks for clay. So you protect your child from painful cuts.
More complex aircraft model
With an older child, you can already think about how to make a plane more realistic from plasticine. Under the supervision of an adult, a child may already use a special knife for sculpting. This model is pretty simple and easy to make. First form the body in the form of a long cone. Then roll plasticine into a cake and cut out the wings and tail from it. Stick them to the body. Then form a cockpit from a white piece of plasticine.
From the dark gray or black clay mold the blades of the propeller. In the center stick a small ball of blue or red. The plane is ready!
The plane of plasticine with frame
But before you make a plane with a frame from plasticine, stock up on material and, of course, patience. You will need not only the clay itself, but also the foil, the wire and, possibly, the foundation for the wings. If desired, this model can be molded from polymer clay and then burned. Such a figure will serve you much longer.
First form the frame. The plane from plasticine should be steady. The frame should be in the body of the aircraft, wings and landing gear. Foil should be in the case if you do not want to spend a lot of material on the plane.
Then begin to carefully stick over the frame with clay or polymer clay. The wings and tail are better cut with a knife, as in this case there will be smoother edges. On the wings you can stick a logo in the form of a white star on a red circle. For this, it is best to use cutters. Then blind the propeller, cling clay to the chassis and make strips of red clay from the sides of the aircraft body. In the center of the propeller stick a small cone of white clay. Do not leave your product in the sun, otherwise it may deteriorate. The plane is ready!
You can sculpt a variety of models. These can be large cargo liners or, for example, small planes with bunk wings. If the wings are too large, you can use a plastic or wire frame for them.
What can replace clay
If you want the aircraft to be stored for a long time, then blind it from baked polymer clay. This material is not suitable for children because of its high cost, but adults like to sculpt from it. After baking, such a plane will become firm and its wings flexible. And when it falls, it is unlikely to break and, of course, it will not fade.
In addition, you can make a plane from the cake mastic. The model is molded in the same way as from plasticine. This plane can decorate any children's cake for the holiday!
