This page describes a recipe for making fake glass ... also known as sugar glass.

Materials :

- old saucepan
- oven
- baking thermometer
- 2 measures of water
- 1 measure of golden syrup
- 3 1/2 measures of sugar

Steps :

- Mix the water, golden syrup and sugar together in the saucepan and bring it to a boil on the oven.
- Leave it boiling until the mixture is thick, with almost all the water boiled off.
- Pour it into whatever mould you're using and let it cool.

Notes :

- Keep it out of moist areas and direct sun.
- Sugar glass doesn't last long (warps or goes sticky) so make it close to the time when you plan to use it.
- Though only sugar, the glass can have sharp edges/points when broken, so be careful when handling.
