Fantastic tutorial. I have been wanting to make one of these soooo bad and actually saw this mold builder but wasn't sure that is what I needed. I know what I am doing this weekend!!!! With your pictorial tutorial I feel confident that I can make this successfully. Thank you Thank you.

I'm sorry I didn't see this before today!

The mold took me two days total to make, total...from the first layer being brushed on to peeling it off the real bottle.

I don't remember what section it was sold in at Michael's or Hobby Lobby...I'm thinking it was where they sell the clay products.

Or, do what I do when I don't know exactly where something is in those stores,..I just ask the salesperson to point me in the right direction...because I find if I start wandering through the store looking for something, I usually ending up spending a whole lot more $ on stuff that I found "on the way" while looking for that ONE thing I walked in for originally. LOL

My hubby makes the joke before I go to those stores..."OK,...what is your MISSION?".... My answer "To buy only what I came for blah blah blah..."


I made the ice out of 1/2 clear corn syrup and 1/2 sugar...nuked it the same way but for a little less time.

Handymama, can you tell me how to post it as a tutorial? I went to the article page but didn't see how to add a new one.

Hmm-no I don't know how to get it there. There's a "tutorials" section within "articles", but I don't see how to upload to it. I think we need a moderator's help on this one.

When you pour the sugar in the mold, do you let it coat the sides and then pour it out? Or is the bottle solid when it's finished?

I printed this topic out a while back but never had the time to do it. About three weeks ago, I made the mould and was surprised at how easy it was. I used 12 coats and it is perfect. I let it cure well between coats.

This weekend I finally made a bottle. It came out ok but I had one very noticeable fault. I poured all the sugar in and when I put it to dry, it pooled the excess. Reading through the post, I guess that I needed to keep rotating it some more. But I was really pleased as to how easy it was to do.

Thanks to all CCers for their detailed help - you are the Best!!
