I want to make a picture of a wine stain on a couch without ruining my couch.

How can I achieve this?

We've got questions like How do I work with ice and a glass bottle for a product shoot? with good answers; this seems to be in the same vein. – mattdm Oct 4 '11 at 12:09

Use Real Wine and Fake Couch

If you can find a piece of fabric which matches your couch...

  • Stain the fabric
  • Take one of the cushions from the sofa
  • Remove the cushion cover (often easier said than done)
  • Put a plastic bag around the cusion
  • Wrap the stained fabric round the cushion
  • Place the cushion and shoot away

... just an idea
