This year in the show I have been asked to produce two cocktails on a tray, now, a lot of theaters don't like actual liquids on stage, so i decided to play around with glue and paint until i came up with something that looked vaguely like a cocktail...
In this Instructable, i will show you the steps I took to make two props which my not look like any cocktail i have ever drank... but certainly something i would consider drinking. Again apologies to those who follow my Ible feed, this is yet another project where i do not possess pictures of the finished article... my camera died during manufacture, so you shall have to make do with what few pictures i have, you get the idea of it i suppose.
If you like it rate it if you make one show me
Step 1: Ingredients
What you will need:
Something like a bowl to mix your paint in
Various cocktail decorations (eg paper umbrellas, straws etc)
Optional extra: Paper mache Pineapple ring
Craft knife or Scissors
Pencil or pen
(something round to draw around)
Step 2: Stirred not Shaken
set your cocktail glass to one side, you must first mix your paint with a small amount of PVA glue, this aids the paint to stick to the smooth glass surface...
Step 3: Lay it on thick
Paint your glue and paint mix onto the inside of your cocktail glass, you may need to either lay it on thick or add a few coats... Because i did layered drinks i layed it on thick, which led to the colours running like an ordinary drink would do... however, this will take AGES to dry, be warned
Step 4: Wipe off any excess splodges
Do what it says on the title... ;)
Step 5: Add second or even third colour layer
As with both proptails i added a second colour, this worked well for the pink cocktail, not so much with the purple and green one... oh well we live and learn, i think i may have been too soon with adding the second thick layer of paint, perhaps leaving it to dry would help
