Next to eating ice cream, there's nothing sweeter than making an ice cream themed arts and crafts project! In this project tutorial, we'll show you how to make Scenic Sand and CelluClay ice cream sundaes that look so good you might want to sneak a taste*! (*Just kidding! Even though Scenic Sand and CelluClay are ACMI approved non-toxic, please don't eat them!)
Materials Needed for Scenic Sand and CelluClay Ice Cream Sundaes
- Scenic Sand colored sand (in colors of your choice. We used Pink, White, and Cocoa Brown to create a neapolitan ice cream treat)
- CelluClay instant paper mache (in white or gray)
- Glass or plastic ice cream sundae mug
- Foam ball
- Newspaper or aluminum foil
- Masking tape
- Acrylic paints in colors of your choice (we used pink, brown, red, and green)
- Paint brushes
- Optional: straw or spoon to place into the mug for a decorative touch
How to Make Scenic Sand and CelluClay Ice Cream Sundaes
Begin by layering colors of Scenic Sand colored sand in the glass or plastic ice cream sundae mug.
Next, create an armature of ice cream and whipped topping by taping foam balls together, by creating balls with newspaper or aluminum foil and taping them together, or by doing a hybrid of the two (like we did).
Mix the CelluClay according to package directions.
Cover the ice cream armature with the mixed CelluClay. Set it aside and allow it to dry thoroughly. Depending on the weather, this could take a couple of days.
Once the CelluClay is totally dry, paint it however you like!
Allow the paint to dry, and then enjoy your ice cream sundae sculpture!
