Choose a piece of aluminum that is slightly larger
than the surface of the ice
Quickly move the aluminum to the table & flatten
the second piece of ice
Why do things quickly?Because you do not want to have the ice you melted refreeze until the 2 pieces are touching.
It is common at our shop to make sculptures from many pieces of ice. The sculpture to the left has 5 aluminum seams in it.
It is imperative to work with ice that is the right temperature. I recommend 15 – 28 F
