    Knead the color from Crayola® Washable Markers into Crayola Model Magic to get any color you like. Add texture by braiding "snakes" together. Press a pattern into the soft modeling compound with your fingernail or a craft stick. Shape a cowboy, animal, or other Western character. Add accessories such as yarn for a rope.
