A Step By Step Guide To A World Of Colour

  1. First and foremost, ensure you have enough mixture ingredients for the amount of Chalksicles you wish to create – remember, the above quantities are enough for one large stick of chalk
  2. Mix the water and plaster of Paris together in your plastic cup until you get a consistency similar to butter cream icing. Remember to use a different cup for different colours
  3. Once you are happy with the consistency, add a few drops of food colouring to the mix, until you get the shade you desire
  4. Spoon the mixture into your silicone ice lolly moulds
  5. Place one ice-cream stick in the centre of the mould, as far down as you can possibly get
  6. Leave the Chalksicles in the mould for forty-five minutes. Once this time has elapsed, remove them from the moulds and allow the to dry standing upright in a plastic cup – leaving them overnight will do the trick
