Today we present a picture made of plasticine, and more precisely a plasticine portrait of Marie Sklodowska-Curie. The portrait is made of hundreds of thin plasticine rolls. The work is in A3 format and took my daughter about 2 weeks. It is really time consuming and requires patience. At the beginning, I recommend starting with a smaller format so that the child does not get discouraged.
Portrait of Marie Sklodowska-Curie made by my daughter will go to a school competition and a school exhibition on the occasion of the School Patron’s Day.

How to make a plasticine portait
The instruction is very simple, but the implementation is very time-consuming.
You should print out the coloring page and then fill it with thin rolls of plasticine. Plasticine is best rolled in small pieces using all fingers.

Nothing gives more satisfaction than doing something yourself. I haven’t even thought about DIY as my hobby, I’ve just done different “projects” when it was needed. Sometimes it’s a disguise for the Masquerade Party in kindergarten. Another time, cutting out the pumpkin and baking the witch’s fingers for Haloween. Or simply organizing holiday souvenirs. Now I decided to share my realizations with you. Let’s go it together!
