How to turn white background to the red

I photographed some gassware in front of white background and I want to change the white background to a different color (in Photoshop). Is there a way how to do it without using masks? The glass is transparent. I tried curves and color balance, but it doesnt work on such light tones as a white background.

I dont know, this doesnt seem natural to me. Did you use masking?

Re: How to turn white background to the red

Hi! There are many ways to skin a cat in Photoshop, but one quick way to do this is to use the "Blend If:" command.

1: Place Your red layer under your white glass layer.
2: Double click your glass layer thumbnail, and the the layer styles menu will appear. There in your center bottom you have your "Blend If:" sliders.
3: Before moving the white slider to the left: split it. This is done by alt-clicking it. This gives you smother transition.
4: Now you can move the white sliders to get your wanted look.

To get it even more natural I think you need to play with your lighting and shading and reflections, but that is a totaly different science that someone else might help you with
