This looks cool. However, I don't know how practical it will be in Singapore, a hot and humid country. If it is in Singapore, it can be a real magic!

Hi Roland. Just guessing, but I would have thought most performing venues, bars, restaurants will probably be Air Conditioned,

Looks like a great trick. Could do with a better name like 'Cold Fusion'. Smile

A couple of quick questions Kieron:

How long, in reality, can an ice cube remain usable during a close up mix and mingle gig, assuming you are doing the trick quite a bit?

Also, pocket handling ... I'm assuming jacket righthand pocket is normal. Could it be suspended under the jacket instead?
Warmest regards
James

This is cool...I'm guessing a jacket is required, or can this be performed in a t-shirt?

Hi james relistly your looking to three to four productions of the same piece as I have stated before I cary eicht blocks in a thermos I tend to use three to four but I allways like to have bakups I tend to throw them away at the end of the night.

I gues you could supend it under the jacket if you wanted I have never tried as for pocket space it doesent take up much but then I keep keys oranges ice and a thunb tip in my right pocket it all come downs to how confortball you are.

Hi dooblehorn if you want to do it the way I do it then yes a jacket is needed but saying that you could do this I shorts and tshirt as long as you have a pocket for the ice if you check out jamies excellent review he talks about it when he road tested it.

hope that helps feel fre to pm me or ask me hear

kIND regards

Hello Everyone,

As I mentioned above, there has been a slight delay and they will arrive with us this Wednesday (10th October) and will ship to Murphys that day. I would expect Murphys to have stock from Monday 15th October.

Thanks again everyone for your support.

Best,
Russ

A nice idea with this although it would require carrying a compile of the prepared ices. It would be great for the big guns of the party or the bride/ groom table. Before you start, draw the names of three cards that are forced at different points during your routine onto your business card. Fold and freeze this into a block of ice. The quality of your card will determine how saturated your card gets. Mine are thin card but once frozen, they kind of solidified again. If you have a gloss card, it works better. Load the ice into your holder.

During the begining of the performance, write down a secret prediction into one of your business cards. Fold it and tell them you'll put it where you can't get to it. Wrap the business card in flash paper and in the process of finding a lighter, switch out the flash paper covered card for a piece of folded flash paper without a card inside. Continue with the too the max revelation. Then find an empty wine glass on the table and place the ice in the glass in the Center of the table.

Perform your set but force those three cards at different points and have them signed. At the end of your set, chances will hopefully be that the ice is not melted. Tell them they may want o keep hold of their cards for later and you hope they enjoy your little prediction.

This is cool for several reasons. Firstly, it leaves them wih your buisiness card. Secondly, it creates an opening and closin of your effect that keeps the intregue of your guests. Lastly, there is a beaufull delayed effect. By the time the ice has fully melted, you'll be a couple of tables ahead and still be getting reactions around the room.

For the workers, it has the potential to be an awesome effect. Delaying the revelation until after you've go e on top of the fact that your card is inside a block of ice, it's just awesome!

I think this is great as pure magic!

I feel cards can be overused, although I do like the idea of the delayed revelation although I would worry they would crack it or smash it open too quickly. I feel if you produce ice from fire alone and don't incorporate it with anything else it is much more pure and adds another string to your bow rather than making it another coin trick or card trick. It is magic, not trickery.

Just my thoughts... Not meaning to stomp on anyone's creativity!! (even you Jamie!!)

Best,

Ben
