    No, but I was a bit scared to say.

    I was really looking to plonk an unwrapped one into a vector of an ice cream (cone). Any ideas?

    Thanks

    You want to put a flake into an ice cream cone,
    as in a 99?
    IE just the chocolate?

    Yep,.

    But, actually, it is to go in a cup. I said ice cream to keep it simple. A customer of mine is selling ‘Cadbury hot chocolate with cream and flake’ so wants a cup with a flake coming out the top on his price list as realistically as possible (made out of vinyl).

    It gets no stranger, I promise.

    Can you not just stack a bunch of thin rectangles, varying the thickness a bit, then add a contour?

    Damn I wish we had ice cream cones with a chunk of Flake on em here…
    Had one in London.
    Or even Flakes for that matter!
    (the chocolate kind)
    My Scottish friend mails me some every Christmas, and I send her root beer.
    Love….Jill

    Must be a Scottish thing.

    Actually I havent ever tasted germolene to check, but the smell is pretty similar, maybe people who drink it dont get sore throats?

    Steve,

    I downloaded it but unfortunately I am missing vinyl stock of 88 of the 90 shades of brown that are present in your vector.

    Any chance of something a bit simpler, seeing as you seem to have your teeth into this so to speak…

    Couldn’t you just make some of the shades the same as the others?

    Crikey, first of all he was scared to reply now he wants me to draw it!

    If you like I have a few shades of chocolate brown as I’m doing a chocolate shop at the minute, want me to nip down and cut it for you?
    Its only just past midnight, where do you live I could drive it up. :lol1:

    I also downloaded that one, it has 9 shades of brown. I have 2 in stock. What can I do to simplify the colours? Maybe lt brwon, dk brown, black and beige would do it.

    Ok
    nice one, I was just starting to weld together various bits of the flake to get 2 colours, I had black for the end of it and 2 shades of brown on main bar.
    Glad its sorted
