So, for these bottles, I started off mixing 1 packet of black flower paste with 2x 250g packets of dark green sugarpaste.  It turned a sort of sludge colour!!  But that was fine!

Once the bottles were dry, I mixed the TINIEST bit of Sugarflair claret colouring in with the glaze to give the final colour.  That's because it was for red wine.  If I'd been doing a champagne bottle, I wouldn't have used black flowerpaste, only dark green and I'd have used green colouring withe the glaze.

I have used PME Arts & Crafts Edible CLEAR Glaze spray with EXCELLENT results - for a HIGH shine,

 

  • Spray on one coat for a matt finish, and apply a second one or more for a glossier shine..

 

  • Allow each coat to dry before applying the next one

 

Hope this helps!

I just can't get on with the PME clear spray...  it's always very patchy and almost speckly.
