Michael's sells the rubber latex, but whew...it's very stinky! It's located int he clay/paper mache aisle.

Yup - that's basically it!

You will still need some regular clay to form a hard mold of the half bottle to use as a support for the latex mold as the sugar is very hot when you pour it in.

I made the sugar bottles a couple of times but they are kinda sticky even after they cool and harden. Are they supposed to be sticky (the sugar bottle had palm/finger prints all over it from where I "unraveled" the rubber mold)?

it could be the humidity - but if they sit out of the mold for a bit they shouldn't stay sticky, reallly important to not get them wet.

Plus, one the label is on and the cap and they are in the cake you'd be surprised at how you don't see those things any more.

okay sorry sweetresults, I have one more question icon_redface.gif ! I understand you dont paint the bottom but how far do you paint down on the bottle? Do you go a little under the bottom edge? And when you are pouring in the sugar do you have it set in the clay form the whole time and just keep rotating as you are filling or do you hold it? Thanks for your help! I think I am going to try and take my 3 boys to the store to get supplies. Yikes.

I can't wait to try one of these. The look too real! How do you make the bottle caps? Do you make a mold from them as well? Thanks!!!!

SweetResults...well I attempted the sugar bottle last night, but for some reason they would not get hard inside the mold. Any suggestions? Actually the first bottle hardened great, but number 2 and 3 never did. I'm wondering if I need to reduce the amount of corn syrup? Thanks.

Barbara

Also, is there a specific place you went to for the labels on the bottles?
