The average time for ice cream to travel from the scoop to your mouth is no more than a few minutes. That doesn't leave one very much time to do much before it melts. Especially on a hot day. If you were, however, to embrace the fleeting nature of ice cream, you could probably do something cool with it. For example, paint.
Artist Othman Toma, created a series where he would paint stunning illustrations from melted ice cream residue. The pieces incorporate a watercolor technique. A major difference, however, is that the water and dry paint combination is replaced with ice cream and popsicles.
There are some that remain skeptical about whether or not it's possible to create such vibrant colors with ice cream. I, however, am holding out hope that there's a guy out there that paints with ice cream. Though hopefully not much of those sweet icy snacks go to waste once he's done.
