ACTÍVA Products Review

ACTÍVA Products Review

We love creating things, but we mostly color or paint because everything else can get quite messy. I love finding out about new art supplies to be able to use with my kids. We were given the opportunity to review Rigid Wrap and CelluClay Quik-Sculpting Kit from ACTÍVA Products. We also received a free pdf download to their e-book ACTÍVA Products' Favorite Sculpture KIDS CRAFTS. The e-book is filled with ideas on projects to make with the rigid wrap and celluclay.

What are ACTÍVA products? ACTÍVA products are products that you are able to use to create a lot of different art products. The possibilities are endless. You can make anything from a simple butterfly with the rigid wrap to more complex sculptures using the celluclay.

Ridgid Wrap is a plaster cloth that allows you to use only what you need for a project. It is simple to use by cutting the roll into strips, dipping into water, and applying it to a cardboard (or any material) cutout shape. It dries quickly and can even be put into the microwave to allow it to dry even quicker. When it dries, it is hard just like plaster, but much simpler to use.













CelluClay is an instant paper mache that is used by simply adding water to the product. It adheres to most any type of material. Once it is mixed, you can store this indefinitely in the refrigerator.

We used this product by going through the projects listed in the e-book. We looked for an easy beginner project to do. Since my girls like butterflies, they decided to try the butterfly project. It was simple to cut the shape from cardboard using the template. I then helped them cut some rigid wrap pieces to use. We got a bowl of water and started applying. It was easy to do, but my 6 year old needed some help to make sure it went on smooth. The first layer dried quickly (we waited about 30 minutes) and then they applied the second layer and formed the head and body of the butterfly. When we finished the second layer, we decided to wait overnight to let it dry before painting. My girls had fun painting the butterflies different colors and making them their own.




















My girls liked creating their butterflies and they are looking forward to creating more things. We liked this product because it easy to use and it is not messy. I love letting my kids create things, but do not like when there is a mess to clean up. I always overlooked art projects that required a lot of time and money and mess. This product is fast drying, easy on the pocket book, and doesn't create a lot of mess. So this product will definitely be a keeper for us. I look forward to helping all of my kids create some beautiful masterpieces.

The website offers lesson plans that look like something we could use throughout the year. The projects range from simple to complex.
