Vodcast : Making sugar glass

For one of our scenes in our media production, we want to have someone breaking into a car.
To create verisimilitude we researched into how to make sugar glass, which breaks easily without any harm. Indy Mogul is a website which has video tutorials on how to make special effects, and this is where we found out how to make it.

We vodcasted our making of our own sugar glass to include in our blog.

List of ingredients:

  • 3 1/2 cups of sugar
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 cup of 'corn syrup' - golden syrup
  • 1/4 tspn of cream of tartar
There was a slight issue of not having a thermometer available, so we had to guess when it would be ready. This might have effect on the final product, but if it fails first time, we will try again, and possibly purchase a thermometer as well. - it is a low budget production for a reason.
