Astonishing Special Effects to Achieve With Clear Ice Balls

Clear Ice Ball Spirits On Ice

Clear ice balls represent more than just a way to keep drinks cold with a quick chill and slow melt. Sure, ice balls are more efficient compared to ice cubes because they melt slower and don’t dilute your drinks as quickly. But did you know you can incorporate an entertainment element with clear ice balls? Spirits On Ice explains in today’s blog.

Eye Balls

Clear ice balls are perfectly round. When you make ice molds in our silicone molds, add a large googly eye to the top of it. After you use the Spirit Ice Vice ice ball press, the hexagonal ice block melts into a perfectly round ball. You now have a huge eyeball staring at you. Use the frozen eyes as part of an ice sculpture or as Halloween decor.

Crystal Balls

Predict the future success of your bar or restaurant with clear ice balls you turn into decorative crystal balls. Place the ice ball in a fancy, decorative glass that exudes a mystical and magical feeling. Or, display the ice ball proudly on its own pedestal with a bowl underneath that collects the water. You can even illuminate the crystal ball from below with a small, colorful LED light.


Turn your Spirit Ice Vice ice ball press into performance art. Make sure you have a sturdy tray or completely flat plate for this one. Build a pyramid layer by layer. Make the base three, four, or five clear ice balls wide. The wider the base, the more ice balls you need, and the taller your pyramid becomes. You may need to drip just a tiny touch of warm water in between ice balls to make sure they stick together as you build upward. Experiment with pyramids ahead of time to perfect your technique!


Much like pyramids, you can add clear ice balls to beautiful ice sculptures. Rather than carve out eyes, feet, or hands for comical-looking animals, use ice balls instead. Imagine a funny alligator, horse, or ostrich with two clear ice balls for eyes. A small dog might have four clear ice balls as feet and legs. Or, you can carve a tiny animal out of a single ice ball if you have an artist on staff.
