Something Difficult Done The Easy Way For Once.
2018, unlimited edition multiple
Typically, building a model ship in a bottle requires hundreds of hours of patient finicky work, inserting tiny parts individually through the neck of a bottle and cementing them into place.
In this multiple, a model ship has been made from superabsorbent polymer, the same material used for novelty "grow in water" dinosaurs. After pushing it into the bottle and filling it with water, the ship will expand approximately 500% in volume.
