Sculpting- Monkeys


3rd Grade Monkey Sculptures

Materials: Crayola Model Magic, cardboard or chip board rectangles, glue, acrylic paint, paint brushes, water cups, paper towels, pencil, paint tray

This is a 2 part project. 1 class sculpting and the next class to paint. The monkey head is clay, the body is paint.

We sculpt the circle for the head first and glued it to the cardboard, then sculpted a smaller circle for the snout and attach to the face. Sculpt the ears and attach,  add a drop of glue under each ear to stick it to the cardboard. The clay slightly shrinks as it dries, so be sure it’s really attached to the head well. Add the eyes and an oval nose. Use the back of the pencil to indent a circle in the ears and the tip of the pencil to indent the smile.

The clay dries overnight. Paint step by step with acrylic paint.
