Sculpting helps develop a child's spatial thinking, the ability to model the world, finger motor skills. Modeling is a tangible form of creativity, since your child not only sees what he created, but also feels, changes it as necessary. The child develops aesthetically, he sees, feels and evaluates creativity, learns patience. In order for him to have an interest in modeling, it is necessary to select those fakes that will coincide with his interests. The boys love the theme of war, so we will learn how to make a tank out of plasticine.
For modeling you will need the following materials:
- Plasticine. You can use an ordinary children's one or purchase a special sculptural one;
- Matches, toothpicks, straws;
- For the base, a piece of foam or a matchbox;
- Piece of plastic film. You can take part of a plastic bottle;
- A plank for our modeling lesson, so as not to stain anything extra;
- Stacks, scissors, rolling pin, fork to make various seals.
- Napkins or a bowl of water,to wash hands while working.
How to make a camouflage tank out of plasticine
To make camouflage plasticine, roll different colors (of your choice) into sausages, and then put them together. Roll out in the palms so that a homogeneous mass is obtained. If you first cut this mass into circles in a stack, and then combine it into one piece, you get a spotted color.
Sculpting a regular tank
Let's consider how to make a plasticine tank step by step. Such a tank will consist of the most important parts: hull, turret, barrel, caterpillars. So:
- It is necessary to knead the plasticine to make it easier to sculpt;
- We make the case either from plasticine, or a matchbox (polystyrene), covered with a thin layer of it;
- Roll up the ball and flatten it a little for the tower, you can choose any shape;
- Insert a toothpick into the body and put a tower on it for better fastening;
- If you want the tower to spin, cut out two identical circles from the film and put them on a toothpick. It will turn out sliding plates between the hull and the tower, which will allow the structure to move;
- Sculpt the trunk. To do this, roll the plasticine into a sausage and insert a toothpick into it to attach to the tower;
- Sculpting a caterpillar. On the side of the case, we make round prints with buttons, wheels, and so on. Roll out long sausages and flatten them. We roll the wheel on each tape, making an imitation of a caterpillar.We wrap the sides of the hull with ribbons so that we get the chassis of our tank;
- Install the turret on the hull;
- You can make a small hatch from above. To do this, roll up the ball and flatten it, then attach it to the tank.
German tank model
Let's consider how to make a tank from plasticine T 34:
- Combine black and brown plasticine, kneading. We sculpt a rectangular body;
- We sculpt a narrow bar on the body, smoothing the edges;
- Making wheels. We roll twelve balls and press them down. We fix the wheels at the bottom on both sides of the body;
- Making a caterpillar. We roll out two sausages, the width of which should be equal to the width of the wheels. Then we flatten them and make patterns on the strips in stacks;
- Attach the wheels to the caterpillar;
- We close the caterpillar with two rectangular parts that we will connect to the body;
- We make a cabin and a cover from different sizes of plasticine. Sculpting the cockpit to the hull;
- We mold plasticine around a tube or a small pencil and stick it into the cabin, we got a muzzle;
- You can add a tank with various small parts that could be present in this model.
Advanced wartime unit
Let's consider how to make a tank t 34 out of plasticine. This combat version of the tank can be considered a craft for May 9 or February 23. Let's get started:
- First, we make a rectangular bar and sculpt a tubercle on top of it, pressing down;
- Cooking five large and three small balls for the caterpillar. Apply with a toothpickholes to look like wheels;
- Make caterpillar tracks and apply a pattern with a toothpick;
- We fasten all the wheels to the side part and wrap them with caterpillar tape;
- Above the caterpillar we attach a plasticine tape, like a protective cover;
- We sculpt a tower on the body, and to it a hatch cover, a long muzzle, additional cylinders and small details on the sides, such as grilles and lanterns;
Sculpting a heavy assault tank
Let's consider how to make a tank from kv 2 plasticine, the model of which was invented back in the pre-war period. This tank is large and looks very impressive. To do this:
- We sculpt, as usual, a large rectangular bar;
- Then we fix the plate over the body. It can be cut out of cardboard and covered with plasticine;
- Lepiem the top tower high and shift it a little bit forward. We attach such a bar to the plate;
- The wheels of such a tank should not be very large, six pieces on each side. We sculpt them, then apply a relief pattern using stacks;
- We fasten the wheels to the hull, and then the caterpillar track;
- In front of the tower we install a rectangular small bar and insert the muzzle into it, which should not be too large;
- Add details and hatch on top;
- We fix the tanks on the sides, and in front we have lights and a cable.
If you teach how to make a tank out of plasticine and deal with fakes with a child, you can establish an emotional andintellectual connection with him. In the process of modeling, you can train him, talking about various technologies, the history of the country and weapons. This is a great way to channel your child's energy in a positive direction.
Having mastered and learned how to make a tank of simple models from plasticine, you can move on to complex ones and develop your talent. You can use your skill in a brighter future.
