I'm going to make a birdcage out of gumpaste and was going to use a large oval shaped glass mug as my "mold", my question is what do line the cup with to prevent sticking? thanks for advice icon_rolleyes.gif

I'd use plastic wrap dusted with powder sugar myself.

For my teacups in my pics I used real teacups and saucers as molds. I greased them with crisco and as the pieces were drying on the molds, I would move them slightly just to keep it from sticking. Worked really well.
