Step 1: Lets Get Started!!

~ Take enough model magic modeling material and make a banana that fits the dish it will sit in. Carefully cut it in half length wise & set to the side to air dry.

~ If you will be using strawberries you can make them with the model magic & slice a few slices, leave a few whole, (if whole you can make the greenery on end with the magic also). Take toothpick & lightly make a bunch of little indents on outside of berries.

~ After fruit is dry, you may want to lightly sand banana so smooth then its time to give it a lil color by painting the berries, the stem, the indents on berries & the banana. Let dry and I like adding a lil Sculpey glaze to give a shine.

~ I took an ice scream scooper and scooped into 3 different containers, a scoop of Kinetic sand. I put brown paint in one & vanilla & strawberry color paint in other two. I mixed each one till I got my desired colors of ice cream.

~ When fruit is dry, lay banana in dish & using scooper scoop each color of ice cream and place down center of banana, in a row.

~ Next I took dark brown paint and drizzled it all over the fruit & ice cream. Then I took shaving cream & squirted it over top of everything. I had to take my finger and manipulate the cream a bit so it looked more like actual whipped cream.

~ Next I placed the strawberries around the dish & again took the dark brown paint & drizzled lightly over the whole dish & last but not least, I sprinkled cut up lil pieces of a craft stick to resemble nuts. Stuck a spoon in it & 'SHABANG, BANANA SPLIT!' NOT FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION
