Are you fascinated with the art of sculpting ice? Does the sight of an intricately detailed ice sculpture at a wedding reception immediately draw your attention? Or have you marveled at how a color logo or unusual design was captured in ice? If so, you've come to the right place. Ice carving secrets is born of the love for and fascination with ice sculptures and how they are made.

Halloween: ice sculpture designs from ice carving secrets



Quality ice sculpture designs are one of the main reason that ice carvers visit ice carving secrets and now there are new ebooks that neatly package new and old ice sculpture designs geared to a specific theme or holiday. The Halloween design ebook was the first to debut, followed by Thanksgiving and Holiday editions. There will be more ebooks coming soon, although dates for their release have not been set. A set of sea life designs are being prepared and there are many other possibilities including New Year's, weddings, and basic ice sculpting versions. In addition to the selection of quality designs, the ebooks also include lots of ice sculpting tool and technique info; future ebooks will include more sections that focus on specific tools and techniques that are useful when applied to the included designs. They'll also include access to ready-to-print templates, which will be an exciting addition!


It used to be that ice sculpting involved only a block of ice, some specialized hand tools, and the skill of the ice sculptor. As the art advances and changes, however, new ideas, tools, and techniques become a part of the enormous body of ice sculpting knowledge. Now, rather than a single box of tools, ice sculptors can put to use an almost dizzying array of ice sculpting tools and equipment to create and display fantastic works of ice art. ice carving secrets makes an attempt to capture as much of that diverse knowledge as possible, distill it, and present it here for you to see and use. Even better, you can add your own perspective, insights, and knowledge by commenting on the blog entries or sending info to ice carving secrets.
