I am doing a bottle cake and the bottle is clear glass with clear liquid inside. I was looking online and someone had done a black wine bottle and glazed it to give that shiny look. Any ideas on how to get that glassy look on fondant? Thanks Dina

ASteaming works well, a garment steamer gives the best effect. You could try a clear lustre spray although I'm not sure how good well they work

PME Arts & Crafts Edible CLEAR Glaze Spray should give the same effect -  its used on some foliage i.e.holly leaves - to give a high gloss finish. Always allow first coat to dry before applying the second one. Good luck! Hope this helps!

I mix even amounts of clear corn syrup & vodka and paint on my bottles.  The shine will stay.  The correct brush makes all the difference.   I went through many brushes until I found the one that didn't leave brush strokes.   It's a fluffy brush (when dry) and looks like it would be good for applying translucent powder (on your face).  All others left brush marks.
