Bellow are many question and answers that come up when we are communicating with our clients:
- How much
time is involved to make an ice sculpture? It depends on the design, complexity and intricacy of the sculpture. A sculpture such as a swan takes aprox. 2 hours to do the
actual sculpting. Add the time it takes to make the ice, prepare the patterns and prepare the ice for transportation and delivery it could take anywhere from 5 to 7
- How long do
ice sculptures last? Most sculptures typically last 4 to 5 hours indoors. Outside in summer months they will last aprox. 3-4 hours.
- Where does
the melted ice water go? We provide a 5 gallon bucket that we place under the table to collect the melting ice. This is why we always ask that a table skirt be provided to hide
- What kind of
table do you need for your ice sculpture? While a 6' or 8' rectangular banquet table is the best, you can use any sturdy table that can be skirted and handle the weight of the ice
- Are ice sculpture molds used? Never! Every piece is hand sculpted.
- What happens
to the ice sculpture after the event is over? Most sculptures can easily be taken down without our assistance. They can be placed outside to water the plants since they are made from
H2O. We are available for take down and removal service with an additional fee. Just ask us if you need this service when you book your event.
- How far in advance do I need to order the
ice sculpture? Although the more advance notice provided is preferable, you can place your order at any time that is convenient for you. However popular dates and holiday seasons fill up
quickly. We will try our best to accommodate any last minute orders but this is getting harder and harder as we are now the only ice sculpting business in the Kansas City
- Can colored lighting be used? Yes,
any color of the rainbow can be use but we always suggest white because it is the most elegant and you can decorate around and on the sculpture with colored accessories.
- Will it hurt the ice sculpture to be displayed outside? Yes, the sun will honeycomb the ice. We always ask that a
canopy be used or set in a place that is shaded.
