You will need

- - a fine sieve;
- - food coloring.
For modeling use leftover low-quality wheat bread. You can take and rye, but it will have longer to stretch. It is not suitable fluffy white rolls and loaves. They, of course, also possible to stretch, but sugar will need almost more than a crumb. The technology of making different sculptures from low-quality bread was invented a long time ago, the prisoners, and handed down from generation to generation.
Separate the breadcrumbs from the crusts. Start to knead. This is done roughly the same way as when working with clay. Rumple would be long. Figures can be done in two ways. In order to get a lot fairly quickly and just as quickly begin to sculpt, knead the bread for 2-3 hours. Gradually add sugar there. The exact weight ratios do not exist, determine the number empirically. You should get a homogeneous sticky mass. The sugar should completely dissolve. Food coloring can be added at the last stage, just before the modeling. The authors of this technology are no dyes on hand, of course, was not. In order to make black and white chess, they added in a lot of ash. In the course were ink, and paste from a ballpoint pen. But they have a better cover already finished figure.
Vilaite figure is exactly the same as you usually do from clay. You can sculpt anything. Those who came up with this method, doing this way and checkers, and chess, and even very complex sculptures. Sugar is needed in order to ensure that the product is not cracked during drying.
Check the sculpture out to dry. The place must be quite warm but protected from direct sunlight. It is not recommended to use oven or radiator. The product can crack.
You can make and more durable sculpture. Take a small amount of water (about half by weight of the bread) and cook sugar syrup. Pour the syrup over the breadcrumbs and place in warm )but not hot) place for 1-2 days. Wait until the bread starts to turn sour. You will easily recognize it by the characteristic smell. Wipe the resulting mass through a fine sieve. You can take just a piece of cloth. On the sieve remain a small dry residue to be disposed of. The remaining semi-fluid mass lay on top of the plastic and place in a warm place. Dry it until then, until it becomes similar to clay. Vilaite and dry figure. If you need to it was a hole, to pierce them before the sculpture to dry.
The mass was even more solid, you can add it to cement dust.
