Here is another image with the painting at an extreme angle to the light so you can see the surface. I'm really piling on the highlights with thick white and letting the texture of the paint mimic the texture of the ice cream. My medium for this is stand oil, 1 part stand oil to 1 part thinner. I mix it with titanium white until it turns into a thick, gooey consistency. I usually only use stand oil for this purpose as it is too thick for any other application.
I've decided to finish the rainbow cone painting before I get back into an other work in progress. It isn't done, but it's getting close with only the cone needing detail. Below are some images of the ice cream in progress. I'll probably go back and glaze a bit of color into the green ice cream. This flavor is pistachio and I think it could be a tad brighter. Maybe a glaze of permanent green light and hansa yellow will shift the color just a bit warmer. I don't glaze very often but I do find it helpful for color and value correction.
