Just a friendly reminder: Breakaway props are for PROFESSIONAL USE ONLY! It can still cut you if used incorrectly, so be careful.

Did you know that breakaway glass used to be called “sugar glass”? Yep, that’s right. Molten sugar was poured into moulds, cooled, and voilà, you had your breakaway prop. The only issue was that it would soften under stage/film lighting, in cars, and attracted ants and any other insects that liked sugar. Not ideal, right?

But fear not, because nowadays, a very specific curable plastic resin is used to make the glass. It’s super reliable and won’t attract any unwanted pests.

Oh, and here’s a crucial tip: breakaway glass cannot be swallowed. Like, seriously! Just don’t do it.

Now, if you’re thinking of adding some liquid (like stage blood) to your breakaway glass, remember this: no more than 30 ml to a beer bottle, and pour it down the side of the bottle, as if pouring a beer in reverse! Trust me, it’s a game-changer. Also, make sure the bottle and stage blood are both at room temperature for the best results.
