    Hi

    Im trying to set up a shoot involving ice cubes. Im anticipating a lot of shots to get what Im after, so Ive decided to try fake ice cubes, but Im having difficult sourcing a supplier in the UK - can anyone recommend a supplier / got any advice ?

    Cheers

    The only place i have seen these is in the Calumet catalogue - try their website www.calumetphoto.com

    An Italian company did have distribution in the UK through Calumet I think. Although I couldn't see anything in their current online it would be worth making contact with them. www.calumetphoto.com

    I just bought some from a local garden centre 99p for 12. They are for decorative display with candles etc. Sure a similar supplier in your area would be a lot cheaper than calumet.

    Try theatrical suppliers from Yellow pages or an internet search.

    Try - www.allplastics.co.uk/fakeice.htm

    ... but make sure you are sitting before you check the price!

    They supply an amazing range of products from filter gels to sugar bottles and glasses.

    There is also a gel version of ice cubes rather than the acrylic ones. The gel is like a crystal until it is placed in water where it swells up into the shape of ice cubes.

    If you really want to go for realism make sure that the ice cubes you go for float in water - some I saw once sank to the bottom of the glass and looked really freaky.
