I need to make the ole "wine bottle in a crate" cake. How do I make the bottle look shinyÂ like glass? It will be a red wine if that matters.
Also, what color do I tint the fondant? I know the real wine bottle is greenÂ but filled with red wine, the bottle looks very dark. What color is that??
Thanks for the help!
Never mind. I figured it out.
LOL if you found a good link please share!!! thx
Well since no one replied to my post, I accidentally figured it out. I made the bottle from dark green gumpaste by laying it over a real bottle, trimming it and letting dry. Once dry I painted it with dark brown airbrush paint and it just dried shiny! Here is the finished product if you want to take a look
AI read that steam makes it shiny too for those that don't have an airbrush :)
I have a steamer (haven't used it yet) Â but Since I used a paint brush to paint on the airbrush color, I was afraid it would make it drip!
AAh ok, I've never used steam either, if you try it let me know if it works, I'm new myself to all these techniques :) the bottle looks awesome so the airbrush color worked, so that's good to know.
For future reference, you can always spray (lightly)Â with Pam to get that shiny look
AI didn't even think of that lol, thanks for the tip
your bottle is great and the color looks almost black in the picture.Â Do you think the green fondant plus brown painting over it is worth all the effort, or can I get away with just using black fondant (for red wne?).Â
