      I am using 4 oz leather for the bottles.
      I form them buy soaking them for an hour or so and then pack them with
      sand. After they are dry. (2 to 3 days) I empty the sand out and put
      them in an oven set to 200 degrees where I use bee's wax to wax the
      outside. When they have cooled down again I fill them with bee's wax
      and then pour it out to seal the insides.
      Pretty standard method I think.
      I just gotta find a way to keep those edges together.
      Hmmm, maybe I could use gum tragacanth.....
