  • Ice festival

    Just had these pics forwarded to me in my email. I think they are incredible - taken at the Ice festival in Fairbanks, Alaska.

    WOW, that even looks cold!!

    When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

        I'm going to go one better and say double wow. Those are incredible. I think Fairbanks has to be one inhospitable place. I understand in the winter you can actually hear the ice freeze harder. In the summer it can get to 100 degrees F. And I thought Minnesota had extremes.

        Thank you very much for sharing those photos. Alaska has always intrigued me.

          Mike - or anyone else who might be interested - there are some more pics here http://www.icealaska.com/sculptures.html - pre-2001 links appear not to work though.

          The festival is held in March - I guess it's probably quite cool there then . Those sculptures must be even more awesome in real life though - I'd love to visit.

            None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

            What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
            The bags seem easier on the surface.
            But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

            Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

            As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

            I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....
