I'm stumped on how to make gumpaste champagne glasses look like glass. I have molded them in white gp, but now I'm stumped on how to make them look like glass.

Can I just brush them in super pearl dust to give them a shimmer?

I would say that, or try brushing them in piping gel. HTH

the ace of cakes way is to airbrush the glass the colour of what is inside it. not quite perfect, but probably as close as you can get.

You can also try edible lacquer or it may be called confectioners lacquer. It will give it a shine.
