The "Hi" story of Plasticine.

Get ready for a wild ride as we dive into the outrageous history of Plasticine! Brace yourselves, folks, 'cause this colorful stuff is about to blow your creative minds!

​Plasticine and painting workshops are the most popular in our school and now we know why. Let us tell you a story......

Part 1: The Epic Birth

Once upon a time in the late 1800s, a genius art teacher named William Harbutt set out to create a clay that wouldn't dry out on his students. Lo and behold, he whipped up a magical concoction of petroleum jelly, chalk, and pigments...and BOOM! Plasticine was born!

Part 2: Technicolor Explosion

But wait, there's more! Harbutt didn't stop at boring gray Plasticine. No way! He spiced things up with a dazzling array of colors that could make even unicorns jealous. Suddenly, artists had a rainbow of possibilities at their fingertips, and the world was never the same again!

Part 3: The Funky Revolution

Plasticine quickly became a superstar in the art world. Sculptors, toy makers, and even movie folks hopped on the Plasticine bandwagon, creating mind-blowing sculptures and stop-motion animations that made our jaws drop. From Wallace and Gromit to your favorite childhood toys, Plasticine ruled the creativity game!

Part 4: The School Shenanigans

And guess what? Plasticine's crazy talents didn't stop there! It sneaked its way into classrooms, turning them into colorful wonderlands of creativity. Kids everywhere got their hands dirty (in the best way possible) as they molded, shaped, and unleashed their inner Picassos.

Part 5: The Epic Comeback

Plasticine's journey didn't end in the 1800s, my friends. Oh no! It kept evolving like a Pokemon on steroids! Nowadays, you can find fancy versions like heat-sensitive Plasticine that changes colors or air-drying magic that brings your creations to life. The future of Plasticine is bright and hilarious!

So, get ready to roll up your sleeves, unleash your imagination, and embark on your very own Plasticine adventure! Whether you're a seasoned artist or just a big kid at heart, Plasticine will bring out the silly, colorful genius in you!
