Last week, our film makers created a backdrop for our movie about the life of Pluto. They also made a practice stop-motion video to better understand the techniques we’ll use for creating the movie. Today, we began making the star of the show: Pluto. We decided to use a flour-and-salt play-dough like material instead of clay because it doesn’t dry as quickly as clay. The pliability of dough will allow us to work and re-work the figures over a longer period of time. It's also less messy than clay and less likely to leave residue on our other props and backdrop. Another benefit of dough: it’s really fun to make! Today we went down to the kitchen with our recipe and supplies. We measured, poured, and mixed. Tomorrow we’ll add color and begin molding it into a planet.
