  • 400ml of water
  • 250g / 1 cup of sugar 
  • Yellow food colouring
  • Cornflour or plain flour 
  • Measuring jug for mixing
  • Saucepan  
  • Reusable bottle to store the goo glug

Simply coat your rig in the glug goo before casting. Note - if you plan to use PVA bags, add some salt when adding the sugar to the saucepan to ensure the PVA will not melt.

      Hi Andy, I would only use a tablespoon initially which should be enough to thicken the mixture. You can always add more if you want to thicken the mix further. Hope this helps?
