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.....
