Milk bottles cut up, mould made, ready for a hdpe catty tommorow  :boogy:

Looking forward to seeing it,mate! My first attempt was a disaster - think I need to cut the pieces up smaller, they didn't melt enough to mould properly. Putting a bright pink 'Vanish' container in  this time! Wish me luck, honky-tonks! :D

Mines pink too lol, i put in a comfort liquid bottle,

How i did it was line my tin with tin foil then oil it, put the squares in and wait an hour then when they have melted take the tin foil out and flip it over then pull the tinfoil off and clamp down the mould, would have worked better for me but i didnt have any g clamps and me being impatient i just put a breezeblock on top lol
