Where is the tutorial to make sugar replicas of wine bottles? I have searched, and can't find them. Thank you in advance!

I think you go to ARTICLES (at the top of the page) then on the side it says catagories. Scroll down to fourth from the end it says sugar works. Hope this is what you need.

I watched all the tutorials on making these, and went to the suggested web site. It would cost a fortune to make one of these molds - I'm guessing close to $200 to get the recommended supplies! I really had hoped to make one, but now I think I'll put it on hold.

UNLESS..... any of you who have already made these? Am I all wet in my estimation?

Hi KayMc, there was tutorial here (that I can't find) that show you how to make your own mold with 'Mold Builder' sold at Michaels for about $20 or so...however this mold builder you would have to brush many layers, on a bottle of your choice, and dry the layers in between, but in the end you would have a mold to make a sugar bottle.
But, if you buy the other stuff that you pour ( liquid silicone) which I think is faster and easier to use you would probably spend about the amont you mentioned.

I have used the mold builder to make a beer bottle mold. i worked great but i put about 20 coats which took about two days. but with more coats i found the mold to be stonger and it gives you more time to hold the bottle and turn it when you pour in the sugar. just remember with this method that you dont get a bottom on the bottle. the mold is also very reusable i have used it on two seperate occations with a total if 9 bottles so far and still looks in great shape!!!

Found the thread!!! the stuff she used in the original thread was 'rubber latex' but I did make one mold myself with 'mold builder' even though I never got to do a sugar bottle. But here's the thread

Yes, you're so right! I made the mold with 22 coats and it seemed very sturdy...and yeah there is NO bottom when you make this kind of mold, you just have to make(sort of) a 'sleeve' at the bottom so you can pull the mold out of the bottle when you're done.

Ok, good luck!
