JerseyCity Frankie Posted April 29, 2015 Report Share Posted April 29, 2015 I am sure one day the phone will ring and someone will say "mail me a ship in a bottle, I need one right away". I have often wondered how this could go right. I have no trouble at all thinking of ways this could go wrong. Aside from the obvious "use lots of padding to keep the glass from breaking", what about if its in transit in the back of a hot truck going down a bumpy road, upside down inside the shipping container? At the very least I assume I would not be able to ship with safety any SIB using plasticean clay as the water, since it never hardens and in fact softens when warmed. On very hot summer days I look into my bottled ships to see if they are sagging to leeward. So maybe I should ask under a new topic " what do you use for water when you cant use clay"? but the real question is, or the response I am hopping to get from you craftspeople, is "have you ever mailed a S.I.B., what lessons did you learn, did it arrive safely, were you able to sleep at night, what tips can you offer?
