It doesn't really matter the size of the bottle unless you want a huge realistic cloud using 10 to 20-liter bottle. Using the smaller half liter bottles are fine too. When you have your bottle put the glue all over the bottle. Make sure to have your cotton ready and take the bottle cap off. When adding the cotton make sure that you don't cover the bottle cap that's where the led's go in also when it comes to adding the cotton make sure to fluff it up as if it were a real cloud and fill in empty spaces so that when the light seeps through the cloud it looks like a lightning cloud.
