I have an Ammar book and there is an effect in there called Iceman Cometh. My question is this, where can I find something to freeze the card in that's the same size as the card box? Speaking of ice, does anyone also know where I can get molds for making ice cube card symbols? I'm pretty sure someone uses these things for their effects. I would greatly appreciate anyone's help with this.

Not sure where you could buy a mold, but you could try putting plastic wrap into an old card box (thus making it water proof) and fill it with water then put it in the freezer.

First, I'm sure Ammar suggests something. However, the plastic cases used to hold decks of game cards should work.

Yes, I used a plastic card case and it worked nicely.

I don't know if this is exactly what you are looking for, but here are some soap molds in the shapes of playing cards and pips. These could probably be used like flexible ice trays. The pips on the cards could probably even be colored if you froze the cards in two steps.

Also, here are some playing card bowls that are sort of large, but that could probably be used to freeze water.

Hope this helps,

Never underestimate the power of heavy duty aluminum foil as a "mold making compound" on your card box.

Also, for fun, and to allow for any melt, if you fill it half way, and tilt it on a sausage in the freezer, then add the prop, and more water, it freezes in a diagonal position. When removed from the aluminum, dip into warm water for a couple seconds. You can even "trim" the ice to fit with a bit of warm water, and pop back into the freezer in a plastic bag to keep things ready till you need them. Remember, if there is little to no surface moisture on the ice, you will stick to it!

Many candy stores have candy molds in the shape of pips that would work well in the freezer too.
