There are a number of difficulties such as variability and volatility of the material used for the sculpting. Ice may be sculpted in variety of temperatures according to the sculptor and various types of ice materials can be used as per the requirement. Pure ice should be free from impurities and only the best materials should be used. There are various sizes and shapes of ice blocks that are produced artificially in natural temperature under expert supervision. Naturally made blocks which are formed due to water freezing in rivers or lakes can be cut to almost any size and the reshaped according to our use. Mainly transparent ice enhances the effect and the appearance of the sculptures. Various tools such as chisels and chain saws are skillfully used to make any sculpture that seems to be impossible as they are made in such a short time span. We need to be Cautious as the ice melts quickly and then we need to modify the shapes and edges by adding water and then freezing it immediately and other improvising techniques. This year is going to be amazing for ice sculpting as the expectations are high and the standard is set and it should be only surpassed.
