After conducting tests with different ice sizes, ranging from finely crushed to full cubes, I concluded that a medium-sized ice proved to be the most optimal choice.

To achieve the desired spherical shape for enclosing the light, I used two circular bowls and sandwiched ice between them. The space in between was then filled with liquid wax and allowed to dry, resulting in a solid form.

To complete the assembly, I utilized a heated wand to seamlessly join the two halves, ensuring a smooth and cohesive outcome.

Finally, I carefully crafted a hole in the sphere to accommodate the insertion of an LED light, completing the creation.
