Sculpt-a-Mold Maps

The maps in this file are made using sculpt-a-mold, a fast-drying plaster widely available. These were class projects, a fourth grade map of Michigan and a fifth grade map of the continental USA. They are large projects, roughly 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 feet. Smaller, individual maps could also be done.

Once students have molded the contours of a region’s topography, they can paint it in beautiful colors. Watercolor works very well with sculpt-a-mold.
