What are scaled models used for?
A scale model is the replica of an object, and can be either larger or smaller in size. Most often the scale model is smaller than the actual objects. For example, an architect may replicate a smaller version of a building to explain the structural plan and demonstrate the project in 3D form.
Is model building a good hobby?
Model building is a great hobby that anyone can do! If you want a form of art therapy that is both fun and relieves stress - this is the perfect hobby for you! With our hobby supplies at Art to Art, the creative possibilities are endless.
Should I paint my model before assembling?
We recommend painting your model after you have glued the seams together. For separate one piece sections that need to be painted a different colour, it is easier to paint these first.
When it comes to choosing the best paint, we recommend using acrylic paint. This is a good choice for all projects and is an excellent option for beginners. Acrylic paints are quick drying and can be thinned easily with a paint medium or with water to achieve a range of effects.
What is the best glue for scale models?
It all depends on personal preference! At Art to Art we stock a wide variety of craft glues from trusted brands like Xpress It, Mod Podge, Helmar and more! We recommend using hot glue or instant glue to easily stick the pieces of your scale model together, without long waiting times. You can also paint your scale model after the glue has dried!
Why are scale models great for kids?
Scale models are a great way for children to test their boundaries and see what they can create. They also serve as an excellent communication tool for children and help to better explain objects to others.
