Hi all

I'd like to add the Snake Pit margarita glass to my collection, but I'm having trouble finding one that's screen-accurate. Has anyone made their own or know of a source? Painting advice would be helpful, too! Smile

Found this replica on a fan/prop page belonging to Joan Fusté:

http://collection.mybladerunner.com/category/props/snake-pit/margarita-glass/?lang=es

Is this person among us?



Thanks!

Darren

Doh! A little bit of research uncovered these:

http://astore.amazon.com/drinkoftheweek/detail/B000GT7VNO/105-8143854-7098802

Seem like a good match, right?

Now as for the exact paint color... Perhaps this thread should be moved to Replica Props...

Otherwise ebay has them by the dozen... Remember to thoroughly degrease the glass before painting. I used a turquoise plasti kote on mine for the stem and a thick layer of plasti kote glass frosting for the rim. You could also very lightly sand the rim an stem to give the paint more adhesion... Not that difficult really Very Happy
