In our example, we used edding gloss paint markers in pastel shades. You could, of course, select any other colours you like from the gloss paint marker range. If you prefer to work with a template, the first thing you need to do is print it out.
Cut out the template to fit the shape and size of your phone and then place it in-between the cover and the phone, ensuring the ice cream cones show through clearly. Before using a gloss paint marker, you need to activate it as follows: shake the marker vigorously with the cap on, then remove the cap and pump the marker a few times on a piece of absorbent paper until ink appears in the nib. Now simply trace the ice cream and cones in your chosen colours and fill them in. After use, always replace the cap securely and store the marker horizontally.
Even though the ink is quick-drying and non-drip, if you're using multiple colours you should always let one colour dry for a short while before continuing with the next. Once you've finished, your ice cream cones will look almost good enough to eat!
