Here it is after wrapping in butcherís paper.
I still do not get the perfect Ice Sphere. Pretty good partial radius but the overall product is just not as good as yours.
I also noticed the superb marbling in your sphere. Where are you getting your water?
I used Costco water for this. I have so much to learn.
I'm thinking its the probe that is farking you up. You might just have to wing it or go by feel. I can't take any credit for the marbling. I think that is likely to be a different result each time. As far as water goes I just use regular tap water but it does come from Lake Superior so that might be the secret.

Don't give up man you will get it.
