HOW TO DRAW AN ICE CREAM IN MS WORD

MICROSOFT WORD DRAWING PROJECT No. 7

TITLE :   AN ICE CREAM WITH TWO FLAVOURS

TYPE   :  ILLUSTRATION


I think that most people love to eat ice cream. Well, MS Word can draw an ice cream that looks delicious too. I will take a break from drawing scientific diagrams and come back to that later. The drawing objects needed to create the picture of the ice cream like the one above are as follows: Arc, Oval, Rounded Rectangle,
and Curve line.

The three diagrams above show how the drawing is done. Notice that the Arc is very useful for creating hemispheric shapes. The Arc can also be filled with colour even though it is not a closed shape. Of course you will have to use the Order commands to adjust the position of the drawing objects.

Rendering colours to the illustration enhances its appearance. Make use of the Paint Bucket tool to colour the drawing objects. I used Brown, Orange and Light Yellow to colour this ice cream. In the next project, I will show you how to create 3-D coloured half-eaten ice cream.  Well, have fun drawing with MS Word!
