Make plasticine

Plasticine- material for modeling. It is made from purified and crushed clay powder with the addition of wax, ceresin, fat and other substances that prevent drying. It is painted in various colors.

William Harbutt created such a material that would not dry out when creating sculptures by his students. The patent was obtained in 1899, and in 1900 the industrial production of clay began at the Bathampton plant. The original clay was gray, but later the product began to be produced in four colors. Plasticine was popular among children, is widely used for teaching art in schools. Unlike clay and wax, plasticine remains soft and practically does not harden or dry. Unlike ceramics, plasticine has a wide range of colors. In addition, unlike clay, clay does not stick to hands. Plasticine acquires a different degree of softness depending on the temperature, which allows you to continue working with it through any period of time. Plasticine is used by children as a material for crafts. Plasticine games promote finger coordination.
