Step 3: The Cut
now take your exacto and cut a small opening on the seem about 1 to 2 inches
should look something like this
Step 4: Adding the Water
grap the ball and squeeze where the cut is place it under the faucet and fill it up there will be a air bubble at the top dont worry about its no problem
Step 5: Freeze It
now put it in your freezer for like 5 hours and take it out
Step 6: Finish the Job
now that its frozen take your frozen ball and your exacto and start on the edge of your cut and finish cutting all round the seem and take your ice ball out
Step 7: Done!!!!!
the finished product is an ice ball with almost no flaw yes i did use tap water the reason it stays clear is because the air gets trapped and rises to area of the 2 inch cut..all you have is a little bubble on top clear ice ball with no cracks and no cloudyness hope you enjoyed the instructable please rate
