Ice flowers.... These beautiful flowers are made by deep freezing water in silicone molds. They are very easy to make, but need very low temperature to retain the shape.

Here is the step-by-step instructable to make these ice flowers...

Step 1: Silicone Molds

Silicone is a rubber-like material, composed of silicone, carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. Silicone rubbers are mostly two-part polymers, the base and an activator. When these two components are mixed together in proper ratio and poured over a solid object, the compound solidifies during the curing period and forms a flexible mold for that object.

Silicone rubber is generally non-reactive, stable, and resistant to extreme environments. they can withstand temperatures from -55 °C to +300 °C while still maintaining its properties. Unlike metal or plastic molds, silicone molds are flexible and very easy to take out the molded object from them without any damage to the shape. 

Let us see how we can make our own silicone molds at home in the next step.
can you eat them?<br>
if you have used food coloring, then you can eat them
<p>Wow...congratulations on winning Sir :)</p>
<p>You could use the bottoms of plastic soda bottles if you want to skip the mold making part.</p>
It was done by dreamberry earlier... you can see it here<br> <br> <a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Ice-Flowers/" rel="nofollow">https://www.instructables.com/id/Ice-Flowers/</a><br> <br> I noticed that when the id of my instructable was displayed as /Ice-Flowers-1
That's what was probably being regurgitated by my subconscious. ;-)<br>
<p>congratulations sir..! :D</p>
thank you...
<p>As long as you use a food grade silicone for the molds these can be made to be edible. As for the colorings, I have had great success with icing coloring to get multicolor ice. Beautiful results great for parties.</p>
<p>the silicone I have used is not food grade... I will try to get some food grade silicone and try with icing coloring... thanks for the suggestion</p>
Wow these are amazing
<p>thank you...</p>
<p>Nice and very well explained&hellip; </p><p>But I understand these ice flowers cannot be used as ice cubes or anything edible as some are colored with dyes, acrylic colors, etc&hellip; </p>
yes, you are right.. could not get suitable food coloring other than orange and yellow
beautiful, partytime :)
thank you...
