I've just started to get into polymer clay and your tutorials are by far one of the best I've seen. And I really love how you're a full advocate of using household items to help instead of buying expensive things :)

cutting that concave out of it so the cone could roll up properly was really clever! o:

hahah very cute! :)
I say hi back to the matchstick ;)
You know what i found is good to do? Well, I made a mold simply by doing a horizontal and vertical line across a circle piece of clay. I baked it so every time i want a ice cream texture I can do that :) When I did the lines on the clay, I used the back of a razor blade where its not sharp and a little fatter than the front :P
Plus, I didnt cut off part of the circle when I rolled the clay up to make the cone, I jsut rolled it It still looks normal :)
You can make a mold out of the match part so you dont have to do it over and over again! You dont need resin tho, just bake that like normal - not rolled up - and then press it into another piece of clay and bake that, so you can just press it into clay the enxt time instead of wasting 30 min :P

Just a suggestion :P

I really like the tip of putting a base in the ice cream cone for structure, tho :) My icecream cone ends of flimsy at times :S
You know what I do sometimes with these kinds of cones? I just fill in some white liquid sculpey (but a little chunky) and stick my caned fruits, (candy?) sticks - you know the ones that are like rolled in two colors and just like stand there, and rhinestones :) I think your tutorial shows how to make it more of a ice cream so ill try it :)

sorry for talking sos soosos much! :3

But i juts wanted to add that i use this cutting mat that my mom had extra but never used cause she didnt like it and its clear and it has texture on it so it gives more texture of a waffly thing :P

Oh and thanks for the matchstick idea! I was looking for something squarish to make waffles cause I dont think my mold is the best choice :) THanks!
