post #301 of 344
Hi was just wondering what is underneath the mold as your pouring the sugar in just in case some leaks out?

I make a clay mold that the latex mold can rest in. Slightly tilted up so the liquid sugar doesn't run out. Before the clay is dry, lay your bottle in it to make an impression of it so it fits just right when making your sugar bottle.

I just place the mold upside down in a tall cup after the sugar has cooled and dried sufficiently. I leave it there until it has cooled down completely.

I used a tall cylinder or jug. Put the latex mold in it then poured corn meal around it ti hole the mold. Let the sugar cool a few minutes then poured it in the mold and turned until it was coated all around

I know this is an oolllllddd post but I'm currently working on making one of these molds with the tub of liquid latex. Everyone says "10-15 layers" but it seems so thin and "layers" is subjective to the person applying them. Approximately how much of the tub did you end up using on the mold? Half? The whole thing?

I just used the whole tub, I figured more would be better than not enough icon_smile.gif

Use what you think looks and feel very sturdy, keep in mind there is hot liquid going in there, I used 3/4 of the tub, and still did not use the mold, I ended up purchasing the materials from make your own molds, because theirs is food grade.

So.. I attempted to make my mold last night and got it, but I think I used too much molding putty (I used Amazing Mold Putty) because I had to actually cut the mold from the bottle because it was so thick.

Now when I pulled the bottle from the mold it was matte and not a glossy looking bottle so it looked funky... is it the mold or did I cook the sugar too long ? Any tips ?

Thanks.

I don't think you waited long enough for your mold to dry. It took mine about 3 days to get the final coats on and dry all the way. Your sugar should be glossy.

Mold works great, sugar works great ... but the bottles come out sticky. What do you think is the issue or solution?

They will be a little bit. Especially if it's humid in your area. Maybe stick it in the fridge for awhile.

After just reading all 21 pages of this post, looks like you need to buy isomalt to get clear ice. However, I used 1/2 cup clear corn syrup and 1/2 cup sugar and heated a couple minutes in the microwave-just watch it to make sure it doesn't turn yellow. Then pour it on some non stick, crinkled up foil. It won't be absolutely clear, but good enough if you can't get isomalt. I'm working on my bottles right now : )
