Here is my bottle mold (rainbow colored LOL) resting in the clay mold while it hardens....

About an hour or so after we pourd the liquid sugar into the mold, I felt comfortable with taking the mold off. It was cool, total firm, and I was DYING to see if it actually worked.

This is what it looked like from the bottom of the mold. I know, it looks like a donut, but I wanted to show you where we poured the sugar in, that it was hollow.

awesome tutorial. Are you sure that stuff you bought at Micheal's is food safe though? I tried looking at Michael's and couldn't find anything that was food safe. If it isn't food safe, then you probably don't want to put it near food. No one's going to eat the bottle, but just wanted to warn you to be careful.

Again - great tutorial! I love the pictures!

This is cool...so the bottle doesn't need a bottom, I guess, since its just gonna be in ice, right?

I gently pulled the mold back around the bottom of the bottle, just like I did on the real bottle. Hubby didn't make sure that the VERY bottom of the bottle was covered when we poured it, but I am ok with that since it is going into the cake anyway. It was a tad jagged, so I was really careful when I started peeling it back so I didn't crack it. It was fine...

It was a little bit harder rolling it off the sugar than it was the real bottle. I was afraid to hold onto the sugar bottle too tight for fear of cracking it.

There is a tiny hole in one lil spot on the sugar bottle that the liquid didn't cover....but I'm not showing it to you. icon_razz.gif
I totally blame hubby for that, too. No one will ever know it's there once the label is on.

I am allergic to latex, so I used Mike's amazing putty which you can get at Michaels (haven't seen it at AcMoore, or Joannes), and it is COMPLETELY food safe...even shows you an idea on the box for making chocolate molds out of it. It is pricey though, $19.99 a container, which will make one beer bottle mold if you work quick and do it correct by the directions. Mine came out awesome, and you can see it in my pics, I also just made a mold for a champagne bottle, which I still have to post. HTH!!!

Here it is! And if you look super closely, you can see "Miller" in the bottle.

WOW!!!!! That is the coolest thing ever. I always wondered how people made those bottles. Thanks so much for the pictures. It really helps to see it done.

Funny thing, too... Once the sugar was poured into the mold, Iused a metal spoon to scrape the measuring cup with to get as much out of it as I could. Well..I was paying to much attention to making sure he kept spinning the mold, I let the spoon with the liquid sugar on it harden to the glass measuring cup.

I turned on the hot water and let them soak for a bit. It worked just enough to let me remove the spoon from the glass...But....like a dummy, I grabbed another spoon and used it to scrape the sugar off the metal spoon, and ended up with TWO spoons stuck together. D'oh!

I put a little water in teh measuring cup and nuked it , and the hard sugar melted and came right out. I had to put the metal spoons in a pot of boiling water on the stove to unstick (thatta word?) from each other!
