So I am going to try to make a sugar wine bottle. I've watched Kayla's Youtube video a bunch of times so I think I'm ready. I made my mold, but here's my question. Will food coloring alter the consistency of the sugar? Do I use paste or can I use the liquid food coloring. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I don't know much about working with sugar. But if I were doing it I would use the paste. Just in case the liquid messes up the sugar. And the paste might give the bottle a better color.

I used gel food color when I made my sugar beer bottles. I added it right before I poured it into the mold. It didn't change the sugar at all.

I used a couple of drops of airbrush color to color my beer bottles and wine bottles.

Well, I made the bottle. I was nervous as heck, but with the help of my DH we did it. It's not exactly the color I wanted, but it worked. Just wanted to share!

Just one more thing. I noticed that the bottle feels sticky even though it is completely dry. Is this a humidity issue? Is there some way or some place I should store the bottle until I am ready to use it?
