Making a Realistic Ice Display Using Encapso® K


Trying to create video and print advertising is difficult enough without mother nature working against you. Specifically, how do you present your product encased in ice when the ice keeps melting away, the melting effect accelerated under hot studio lights?

Answer: Don’t use ice at all.

Encapso® K is a water clear rubber that can be used to encapsulate just about anything. A feature of Encapso K is that the cured rubber can be crumbled to look just like ice, glass or diamonds.
