I borrowed a friend's beer bottle mold. She used it once. It is the kind that you paint on in layers (sorry...I don't know the name of it). She didn't have any problems unmolding it but I am. I made 4 bottles and all of them stuck and either broke unmolding it from the force or we broke them because they just weren't budging? I tried both sugar and isomalt and the results were the same. I tried putting the mold in the freezer for a few minutes and that didn't help either. Can you put vegetable spray or anything in the molds first? Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

Maybe you can try some cornstarch lightly rubbed on the inside of your mold before begin and see if that works. Maybe someone else has another idea for you. Good Luck

Thank you for responding. I just tried the corn starch with no luck. Anyone else have a suggestion? Anything? TIA!

Try making the bottles a bit thicker with sugar. I found that helped.
