The Magic of Fake Ice - Cubes, Slush, etc.- 08.17.10

fakeice0.jpg On more random experiments today ~ part of Jackson’s photoshoot for Marcia’s new Cocktail book going on at my house… i get to play with all kinds of prop ICE! In slushy form (from powder to slush, just add water) - fake cubes - fake less rounded rubbery cubes - magical condensation that doesn’t drip… and makes warm drinks in the hot sun look more appealing… Fascinating goodies from Special Effects Unlimited in Hollywood! Take a peek at the experiments on the next page…

Here’s the Polysorb mixed with water ~ its a bouncy gel ~ looks great fork fluffed ~ just like with camping mashed potatoes… fakeice2.jpg

…up close! fakeice3.jpg

Fake perfectly rounded ice! fakeice4.jpg

This is the more jagged rubber ice ~ its bouncy like a SUPER dense jello jiggler… fakeice5.jpg



Glycerin for misting… fakeice8.jpg

… this drink has not only never been cold… it was also sitting in the sun for like an hour! Yet… misty! fakeice9.jpg

That polysorb stuff is what’s inside disposable diapers. My daughter is a movie makeup artist, and she uses that stuff when she has to make someone look like they’ve been frozen.

Did I see a cucumber with a condom on it?

LOL, I think that is just the condensation built up on the surface of the plastic shrinkwrap on the cucumber. It does look like a condom, though!

How come there is a cucumber wrapped in a condom on pic #7 ?
