modeling or modelling

modeling or modelling
   A sculpture technique in which a three-dimensional form is manipulated in a soft material such as clay — either modeling clay (Plasticine is a well-known brand) or ceramic clay — or wax. The term also refers to the effect of light on a three-dimensional form. The three-dimensional quality of such a form is emphasized by means of light, shadow, and color. Reproducing the effect of light, shadow, and color in a drawing of such a form makes it seem more realistic. For example, see thumbnail to rightMasaccio (Italian, 1401
   c. 1428) modeled the figures in his painting of The Holy Trinity to make them appear solid and round.
