I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Ice Cream!

Ice Cream Sundae Art Project

Are you looking for a fun art project to try at home? Here is a project for all the ice cream loving kids out there!

This project was inspired by the amazing food art created by artists Claes Oldenburg and Wayne Theibaub. Click on the links below to learn more about these great artists!

Ice Cream SundaeMaterials needed:

Model Magic (primary colors and white) Model Magic is available at Target and Michaels. 
(Or make your own Model Magic-  Click here to learn how.)

Paper plates

Brown tempera paint

Elmer’s glue

Paper

Pencils

Crayons/Markers/Colored pencils

Directions:

  • It’s always a good idea to draw out your ideas before your start working with Model Magic, so let’s start with pencil and paper!  Draw your dessert with pencil and then add in the color and details with crayons, markers or colored pencils. Get as detailed as you want. Be creative and have fun!
  • Now it’s time to get out the Model Magic! Did you know that Model Magic colors can be mixed together? Take a ball of each of the colors you would like to mix. Knead the colors together to combine. The longer you work at it, the better the colors will mix. Working with Model Magic like this is a great way to learn color theory (red + blue= purple, blue + yellow= green, red + yellow= orange ). Mix away and create the colors you need for your sculpture.
  • Now that your colors are ready it’s time to start creating your delicious sculptures! Using the paper plate as your base, start with the dish for your sundae and work your way up. Don’t forget to refer back to your drawing as your work.
  • It’s time for the finishing touch, chocolate syrup glue! Mix a small amount of brown paint and glue together. Then, drizzle the mixture over the top of your dessert sculpture.
