These Illustrations Replace Paint with Melted Ice Cream

Illustrator Othman Toma decided to substitute paint for melted popsicles in his latest series of paintings. The images cleverly use things like melted ice cream and ice pops as the acrylic to create these stunning watercolor-inspired images.

When popsicles and ice cream melt they leave behind a colorful watery residue that looks a lot like traditional watercolor paint. It makes perfect sense then that Toma decided to use the melted liquid as paint in these illustrations since the consistency of the thawed frozen treat can be blended and manipulated on paper just like standard water color paint. Toma uploaded these thawed ice cream portraits of people, lions and tigers onto his Instagram account for everyone to see and enjoy.
