Modeling Mod"el*ing, n. (Fine Arts) The act or art of making a model from which a work of art is to be executed; the formation of a work of art from some plastic material. Also, in painting, drawing, etc., the expression or indication of solid form. [Written also {modelling}.] [1913 Webster]

{Modeling plane}, a small plane for planing rounded objects.

{Modeling wax}, beeswax melted with a little Venice turpentine, or other resinous material, and tinted with coloring matter, usually red, -- used in modeling. [1913 Webster]
