  1. I tried to send an e-mail to you but not sure it made it. I have been searching for years for a good storage container for my dyes. I found the other day at Michael’s Craft store a plastic “Wash Tape” storage box that works perfectly for 4 oz bottles. Hopefully my e-mail was forwarded to you as it had some photos of other minor adaptations I made. Still searching for something to store 1 Qt. bottles in.

  2. Hello,
    My question is this: how large should you cut a pattern for (in my case) a phone case to wet mold it? I am trying to make a double pocket case for my Samsung Note 9 and a solar charger which is slightly smaller than the phone.

    1. Hi Jeff,
      You’ll want to add about 1″ to 1-1/2″ extra on all sides after you’ve factored in the depth of your mold. So if the case is 3″ wide and the depth is 1/2″, you’ll want the width to be at least 6″. It’s always better to have extra than not enough.
