Mr. Model Skeleton Tutorial

I have a hard time throwing away multiples of anything, as I am sure they are just a few steps away from becoming a great art project. This is especially true for plastic, so it was only a matter of time before I figured out what to do with old watercolor trays. With just a few items from Michaels, you can make this cool little skeleton in his own carrying case.

Supplies Needed: Tray, Black spray paint, Crayola White Model Magic, brush, Sparkle Mod Podge.

1. Remove the inner tray from the watercolor case and wipe clean.

2. Spray paint inside and out with black spray paint.

3. Roll small tubes of Model Magic. Place as shown for the hips and legs. Make sure the rolls are not so thick that the lid will not shut when complete.


4.  Attach a center spine.

5. Form a head as shown. Poke holes with a pencil for two eyes and a mouth.

6. Add three skinny rolls for the ribs.

7. Roll arms and place. They should go down past the hips.

8. Add skinny rolls for the fingers and toes. Add small circles for knee caps. If the Model Magic is fresh, all the pieces will stick together really well. After a few days, the entire skeleton may need to be glued in the tray to stay in place.

9. Close skeleton and paint cover with Sparkle Mod Podge. Let dry until the cover is clear and sparkly. Have a happy recycled Halloween!
