Today I thought I’d finally share with you how I make icecubes for my charms. This is probably one of the most asked questions on my instagram!
I use Fimo Liquid Gel and the bottle looks like this:
First step is to pour some on to a baking sheet. This depends on how much you want to make. I usually make up quite alot when I first make these, just so I don’t have to do this every single time. You don’t need to use any tools to spread the liquid out on the sheet, just let it run out by itself.
Next step is to bake it. I usually set the oven to 100 degrees celcius and bake it for around 15 minutes. This is what works for me, but every oven is a bit different so you just have to try and fail a bit at this step.
While it is still warm chop it up into square like pieces or whatever shape you want your icecubes to be. Doing this while it is still warm is alot easier then waiting until it is cooled down.
And the icecubes are ready to be used on a charm! I usually store them in a little box like the one below. I use Fimo liquid to seal them on to the charm also, this is okay and won’t ruin the shape of the already prebaked icecubes!
I put together a little video showing how to make a simple kiwi fruit drink with the icecubes. Heres a quick supply list if you were wondering where I bought the different things I use in this video:
- Polymer clay in the brand Fimo – Craftcellar
- Black micro beads, split jumpring, lobsterclasp and dotting tools – Miniaturesweet (affiliate link)
- Fimo liquid – Craftcellar
- Clay Extruder (affiliate link)
Hope you found this mini tutorial helpful!
