How do I make faux champagne for a prop?
By Bridgette from Virginia Beach
Resin is probably the best choice, very lightly tinted with yellow dye (go to the your local craft store and ask them about resin).
Why not use Sparkling grape juice of sparkling cider? They are non-alcoholic and in a bottle that resembles a champagne bottle.
Ginger ale can look like champagne. If it's not going to be drunk (if it doesn't have to tip when the glass does, add gelatin to solidify it. Resin has been suggested. That would be good for a one-time project. From the stage, I don't think you can tell about what the liquid is. Apple juice, diluted, isn't tasty, but would be thrifty.

I would like a recipe to make fake foods especially the faux coffee and wine that you see in model homes.

For the coffee, mix flour and glue and pour them in a coffee cup. After it dries, paint the surface brown. You can also use puffy paint to add cream after it dries. For the wine, just use the glue. It may take a while, but it will look great. Put red food coloring in the glue, and mix it in. When the glue is partially dry, you can even put in a fake fruit to "flavor the wine". When the entire thing dries, you can color the top with a red Sharpie. For a finishing touch, get a fake lemon slice from a store and hang it on the rim of the glass! (11/22/2008)
