Mousepaint

These little mice were made by kindergarten students after reading the story Mousepaint.  They blended  red, yellow and blue Model Magic to create orange, green and violet.  Each mouse was made by rolling a chubby teardrop of Model Magic.  Standing mice had a  nose pinched out.  Ears were made by flattening 2 little balls of  clay.  Wire whiskers and chenille stem tails were poked into place.  The tip of a new Sharpie was dabbed on for the eyes and nose.

Little puddles of primary colors were done in marker.  The mice are held in place with white glue.
