ASK A QUESTION Explicar con plastilina.
My girlfiend has just explained what 'to explain with Plasticine' means.
Do you know what it means? Is it a common expression?
Does it mean to explain with absolute clarity? I'm not sure...
Ignoring the context, the meaning of the phrase, is to explain someting in the most simple way possible. The word "plastilina" is a form of modeling clay, and as used in the phrase , would express "so simple a child could understand"
Interesting - so would it be more or less the same as when you say in English 'Do you want me to draw you a picture?'
