• The clarity of the ice sculpture depends on how the ice is made. • • The more time spent circulating the water during the freezing process plus using the best quality water makes for a clear block of ice. There are three types of ice that can be used in sculpting: • Basic canned ice with a white feather in the core • Crystal clear ice blocks. Of course the crystal clear blocks cost the sculptor two to three times more than the canned ice. • Naturally Made Ice (From the elements on our planet). • Quality conscience sculptors primarily use the crystal clear ice that is made in a controlled environment.
