Make Armor With Crayola Model Magic

crayola armor

I’m constantly surprised at the number of materials you can use to build armor. Craft foam, cardboard, Worbla, and even Crayola Model Magic are viable options. DeviantArt user Xero-Cosplay wrote a tutorial with images to guide you through creating armor pieces with Model Magic. While she notes that the clay is fragile, it is an affordable way to to get effective looking armor. She uses cardboard as an understructure for the Model Magic and compares it to covering a cake in fondant. After you cover the cardboard, she recommends these steps to clean it up:

“With a small cup of water nearby, dip your fingertip in the cup only to pick up a drop or two of water. Put your finger on the seam and work the clay in a circular motion until it begins to disappear. The water will slightly dissolve the clay, helping them to blend together. If you have a large gap you’re trying to fix, sometimes it’s necessary to add a little extra clay to it and repeat the process.”
