  • How to sculpt clay ice cream. Ice Cream Charms - Step 1
    Step 1

    The main thing that you need for this project is a mould shaped like an ice cream cone. My ones were candy moulds that I got in the cooking section of a craft store. If you can't find them, get some off ebay.

    Place some tinfoil in the mould, squish in to place so that it takes the shape of the ice cream cone. Place the fimo cone in the bottom and remove the tinfoil from the mould.

    Use a cotton bud to get the tinfoil nice and smooth. Then pour a small amount of the clear fimo in to the top of the tinfoil, spread it out using the cotton bud.

    Place in the oven for 15 minutes until the fimo is hard.

You really are like the crafting queen! If only I had MONEY! I wish I lived in michaels or some other amazing craft store, I might be able to make more awesome crap! lol.

I think I'm going to use resin for the top part of this, because I found REALLY cheap resin that works great. Happy
