diy mini clay ice cream bowl
Next, we'll make the ice cream. I mixed light pink, dark pink, and translucent colored clay to get a swirly effect. It makes the ice cream look a bit more realistic. Shape the clay into a ball and press the bottom flat. Use a toothpick to press out the bottom edge. Then use the toothpick to make the edge rough.
I textured the ice cream with a ball of foil. Then I cut small lines on the top with an exacto knife.
Arange the ice cream however you want in the bowl, using liquid sculpey to adhere everything together.. I decorated it with "chocolate syrup" and a cherry. (To learn how to make the chocolate syrup, read the tutorial I did here).
Bake it according to the instructions on your package of clay. Finally, add a coat of glaze, and you're finished! Isn't it cute?
