Ways to model plasticine trees

Plasticine modeling is useful for children of any age, because it develops the motility of hands, thinking, imagination. True trees see every day and try to repeat them in plasticine figures. Extinguishing each piece, they produce preferably, perseverance and diligence that will be useful to them in life.

Autumn tree in plasticography technique

Plasticiography is an unusual pattern of drawing plasticine on a dense surface. Here you will need all the skills of working with sticky material: the ability to smell it, roll out, flatten, pull, pinch, stag. Ready-made pictures are obtained beautiful, relief, and children acquire a lot of useful skills. We propose to work in this technique on the topic “Autumn tree”, we will tell in stages, as you can do.

To work, we will need a sheet of black cardboard, stacks and plasticine. If you have a regular option, it is necessary to hold it in warm water to softening. It should be remembered with the child, what color leaves in the fall, suggest it to choose plasticine yourself. Then remind the baby that at this time of the year part of the leaves falls on the ground and covers it with a solid carpet.

Start sculpt the picture from the ground covered with bright leaves. To do this, take the material of red, yellow and orange colors, roll it into thin elongated plates and put in the bottom of the cardboard, without creating lumen. It turns out a beautiful autumn carpet from leaves. Go to work with a tree trunk. In nature, it has an inhomogeneous color. To bring the picture to reality, take three colors of plasticine: black, brown and red. Rolling the balls of each shade and stretching them with “sausages”, connect into a single barrel.

Now the workpiece of a beautiful heterogeneous color in the upper part is divided into alleged branches, and in the bottom stretch a little, to create the illusion of smaller roots. Future tree set to fallen leaves in the bottom left corner of the cardboard. Gluing the trunk to the surface, pay special attention to the branches. If you need, add more plasticine for them. Using the stack, make a textured tree bark.

To work with leaves, except for plasticine, which covered the Earth, will need a few more shades of green, then the picture will turn out more colorful.

Child explain that the leaves change the color gradually, and in the fall there are days when you can simultaneously see the summer and winter shades of the crown. From plasticine of different colors roll small balls and flatten them in the form of a tortilla. Children they will resemble chocolate candies covered with colored caramel.

On the lower part of the crown, put the leaflets of green shades, gradually enter the yellow color and dilute the picture with pink and orange blanks.

Part of the yellowed and blusted leaves should be down, depart it in the figure. It turned out a bright and colorful autumn tree, as if shrinking with candy leaves. If the panel planned for the exhibition or it will be used as a decor, a picture can be covered with colorless varnish and insert into the frame.

Green tree on cardboard

Now offer a master class on making a beautiful plasticine applique of green wood on cardboard or paper. The modeling of the pictures can be offered to children of school age, as there is a painstaking work on each leafle, which will allow to cut the plant as a textured and realistic. Work is better to perform from lightweight plasticine on wax basis: it is softer and supple.

Prepare two color briquettes: brown and green shade, as well as a sheet of cardboard and stacks.

Ring and roll in the ball brown material, plump it slightly and stick to the bottom of the cardboard. Try to wailing in the center of the left line. Leaving the base of the workpiece to thick, the second half pull up and branch up the cardboard sheet, creating massive branches.

Take the stack and draw on a bark tree trunk. It must have a vertical drawing with the presence of roughness.

For the manufacture of leaves separate from a green briquette a piece of plasticine, split it into a variety of small elements and roll in the balls. Balls gently stretch, making them similar to flat pumpkin seeds. On each workpiece with one of the sides, draw a stack picture, reminiscent of the bodies of the leaves of trees. Try to make the drawing turned out realistic.

When all the leaflets are ready, start their installation from the tops of the branches. Then each subsequent row will be slightly lifted over the previous one, creating a bulk picture. Leaves should not go too far. To give them naturalness, you can slightly deploy them to the sides and impose one item to another. A beautiful powerful tree will definitely be proud to someone who made it.

Other options for crafts

Millions of trees grow on the street, and if they look at them, then crafts from plasticine will turn out to be diverse, especially with elements of natural material. Look at what delicious oak can be with dry autumn leaves or sniped from pumpkin seeds, made with their own hands.

We offer some more master classes, in which we will tell step by step, how to make a bulk tree, a fabulous plant, as well as teach the technology of twisting plasticine parts.


To make a beautiful bulk tree, take two brown briquettes of different shades. Form the same balls of walnut. Roll the balls into the tubes and cut the pieces. From each piece to cut a thin flagellum. Collect harnesses together and tighten: It turns out a thick trunk with beautiful divorces. At the top of the workpiece, form two large branches.

For leaves, take 3 colors of plasticine, divide into fragments, roll small balls and make items from them. Connecting the edges of each cake together, we get beautiful leaflets similar to roses. Leaves stick to branches. Toothpick draw the trunk, depicting a tree bark.

With twisted

On the previous example, we showed how to twist the trunk of a tree, and now we will tell about the leaf spinning technique. Take a sheet of cardboard and draw a contour of the facet of the future tree on it. Roll out of brown plasticies of different shades Long flagella. Fill with the space of the trunk, not leaving the gaps. At the top above the barrel add branches.

Now roll out multicolored flagella for leaves. Tighten each of them into a neat spiral. Fill the resulting sheets, beautifully alternating shades. Green long harness harness with pieces, each of which fold in half in the form of a tick. Hold the grass at the base of the trunk. Little amount of spiral leaves Place in the grass, as well as depicting falling from the tree.

Look at the examples as you can still perform plasticine plants with twisting.


We offer another craft from plasticine – Magic carrot tree. Roll the balls from the green material to fill the crown and secure them. From the brown piece to form a trunk of a tree. With the help of a match, connect the barrel and the crown. Orange plasticine roll a lot of small carrots. Combine them in a bunch (6 pieces). Enclose carrots to the tree.

We offer as examples of fabulous trees to familiarize yourself with the works on Pushkin theme of children of senior school age.
