1:12 Margaritas by Bon-AppetEats 1:12 Margaritas by Bon-AppetEats
1:12 Margaritas, made from resin. Garnishes made from polymer clay.

I know, I know, there's no salt. Unfortunately, I've learned that salt plus superglue goes funky after a while (it starts turning brown and really gross looking), so until I can find a substitute that looks decent, I've left it off. I'm thinking sand would work...if I could ever find white sand at the craft store. :P

The salt used is usually more square, maybe some small square beads?

They'd be too large still. I found some fake salt/sugar that looks like the real thing. Once they stock margarita glasses again, I'll buy some and try it out. :)

Love your stuff -- my mom's hanging over my shoulder going "oh my god...".  Just as a suggestion, if this solution doesn't work, visit your local pet store and ask for white aquarium sand, as fine a grade as can be found.  Usually it's also called "hermit crab sand".

The stuff not only works for aquariums, it also makes a great cover for potted houseplants by both blocking the little dirt flies from getting to the soil to lay eggs, and preventing what comes from the eggs from getting out of the dirt to go propegate the species.  Only problem is that in time, the watering of the plant causes discoloration of the sand, and it has to be replaced completely each time the plant is re-potted.

It might work to mimic salt for your purposes, or as white "sugar" drifts on things like the top of cakes.  As this sand also comes in at least four or five colors, it might also mimic colored sugar sprinkles on things too.  I hope that it might work for you if the other thing doesn't.

Thank you!

You know, I am about to buy a second fish tank, so it would be worth checking out some sand! Think it'd be easier to keep clean than gravel, too. I hadn't even thought of using the different colored sand as sprinkles. I'll be looking to see how it works when I get my new tank set up this weekend. :)

I hadn't even thought about making earrings from these little drinks! Maybe I should (if they ever stock these again >.<).
