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
