When I made my ice the tin foil wouldn't come off of the hardened sugar! What could I do different? Thanks!

Ok, here is my attempt at a sugar bottle! Still don't know what to do with the sugar sticking to the foil for the ice look. I might try using a silicone pan next time.

Your sugar bottles are amazing. I have never used sugar or latex molds as yet. I really would like to, where do I start and what basic supplies would I need to make one sugar bottles as my first project?. I know this may be aggressive for a first sugar project but I would like to give it a shot! Or what would you suggest I do as a first project with sugar? Thanks for your help this is a wonderful site.

I used the following materials:
1. two stirring sticks from the paint dept at Home Depot
2. long nail
3. cork covered with thin clear plastic (so the silicone didn't seep in)
4. mailing tube from Staples cut to cover bottle size
5. one side of the mailing tube lid
6. Smooth-On OOMOO30

I put the bottle up side down on the cork and then fit the mailing tube onto its lid. Then I poured the Smooth-on stuff over it.

I waited 6 hours and had my mold.

Mailing tube which I cut down to the size of the bottle I found at Staples:

Smooth-On is silicone rubber compound:

I found it at Pearl Art & Craft Supplies and Utrecht Art Supply and you can order it from the Smooth-On website...they have distributors you can go to listed as well http://www.smooth-on.com/distributor.php

I did NOT find it at Michael OR AC Moore
