    Select a recycled glass, plastic or mirrored container. Use Crayola Crystal Effects Window Markers to draw shapes and designs on the surface of the container. See how the marker strokes crystallize and look like ice. Continue to decorate the container until the entire surface is covered.

    Make your “ice” sculpture unique! Vary the colors or leave areas uncolored to create see-through areas on the container. Decorate several containers of different shapes and sizes to make your own ice sculpture festival.
