The demo Adam Grace put on his own web site three years ago drew hundreds of emails. It showed Adam using the energy from his body to visually freeze a quarter and make it engulf with white frost.
Adam then built the effect with Ellusionist to make this new effect practical.
Three years later the hard work was rewarded.
Ask a spectator to wrap his own quarter in a plain napkin you give him. The magician doesn't touch either the napkin or coin until the spectator finally hands it to the magician to demonstrate the freezing. The napkin helps protect from the cold that will occur. [Note: there are no chemicals on the napkin and none in the magician's mouth or on his hands]
Summoning a change in his body temperature, the magician begins to blow freezing air onto the napkin, causing the napkin to become ice cold. He unwraps the quarter and, leaving it sitting by itself on the napkin, without even touching it, he blows on the coin.
The quarter frosts over white and freezes visually. When picked up by a spectator the coin is bitter cold and still white from frost.
Frozen was generated by the mind of Adam Grace. It is workable and practical. Our team noted that in every street performance the spectators had no answer except that Adam must have really changed his body temperature.

A new realm of magic has entered out of the cold. Harness it today, in download or DVD format.

I do not get why everyone says that the effect is dangerous, too much hassle, and too expensive or hard to get the stuff to perform. All are entirely untrue! It's true that if you misuse the gimmick or are irresponsible with it you can get hurt. So what? You can get hurt with anything if you misuse it. It only takes thirty or so seconds to set up for the performance, which you can do before your show. Or if you do walk around just excuse yourself to the bathroom for a minute. The stuff required to do this trick is a very common household item. I actually had some of it laying around the house. As for where to get it, I found it for cheap at Costco in bulk, which is good.
The build-able gimmick which allows you to do the trick without the napkin works well and is practical in most situations, though at times can be a little angle sensitive.
All in all, Frozen is a great product, definitely worthy to be in the ellusionist store!
This works great and gets amazing reactions its is soo easy and effective but the stuff you have to buy for it isn't cheap and hard to get out, I'm not giving any more away
Personally not my favorite trick. The set up is annoying and if you let it site for awhile it does not work and you have nothing to say, but if it does work then it is pretty cool.
