    Flatten a 2cm (¾in) diameter ball of pale brown polymer clay to 2mm (1/16 in) with a rolling pin. Cut out a 3cm (1¼in) circle, then cut off the top third.

  • How to sculpt clay ice cream. Ice Cream Cone Charm - Step 2
    Step 2

    Use a craft knife to make a criss-cross pattern on the larger part of the circle. Roll it around the end of a pencil to make a cone shape.

  • Step 3

    Bake to set hard, then cool.

  • Step 4

    Roll a 3cm (1¼in) ball of white polymer clay into a sausage 6cm (23/8 in) long, then roll it flat with a rolling pin to 5mm (¼in) thick. Cut a strip 5mm 
(¼in) wide and twist it on top of the cone in a spiral.

  • Step 5

    Cut a thin chocolate stick from brown polymer clay rolled to 2mm (1/16 in) thick. Make it look flaky by pressing a craft knife along the sides.

  • Step 6

    Make a hole in the top of the ice cream with a needle for the mini screw eye, and another larger hole where the chocolate stick can later be glued.

  • Step 7

    Bake the finished ice cream cone and chocolate stick separately to set hard, and cool.

  • Step 8

    Glue the chocolate stick in place and fix a screw eye into the ice cream. Fix a jump ring on to the screw eye and thread a length of cotton cord through it. Attach a crimp and a jump ring to each end of the cord, and attach a clasp.

    Two-tone Ices
    Use different colours 
to suggest two flavours in each cone for this 
icy charm.
