Ice From Water Review

Official Review

The effect is this:
You show a glass of water. Your hand is empty. You reach inside of the clear liquid, and lift out a hand-full of what appears to be ice. This ice is then passed out to the participants for examination. The effect is strong, and in the right setting, the preparation and amount of advance time to create this effect would be merited. If you are a working strolling close-up magician, you should know that this effect requires an extremely involved set-up. You have to prepare a chemical compound many hours in advance. You have to have access to distilled water, and also, you will need matching crushed ice, that is also created from distilled water. With that said, if you are a tv magician looking for an amazingly visual and novel effect for your next special, this might fit the bill.

For the right performer, in the right venue, with patience and preparation, this might be considered a four or five star effect, well worth the effort involved. But, the simple fact is that in today's marketplace, I feel your time and money are better spent on other books or effects that will give you and your audience more joy and impact, with less mess.

If you are a fan of chemistry magic, or like to experiment with new science principles that can be adapted to magic ideas, you might enjoy purchasing this as well.

Manufacturer's Description:

The performer places a clear glass of water on the table. With sleeves rolled up and both hands shown empty, the performer reaches into the water and pulls out his hand in a closed fist, opens it, and ice appears... Again, the performer shows his hand empty, reaches into the water, closes his hand and produces more ice... a third time he reaches in, this time producing a HANDFUL of ice!

This is an effect that looks like a REAL miracle. There is NO other effect of this kind that can match this one.

Comes complete with gimmick and 5 page instruction booklet.
