brilliant chemistry

Good find, never knew you could do this. One question though; Does it matter on the milk? Whole, 2% or 1%?

Ok, for all of you who don't know what you're talking about, this is not cheese. there is a chemical called casein within milk which is very similar to the long polymers in plastics you see today. once formed it makes A knid of plastic called galalith: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galalith , so yes this is a real plastic.

This blew-out my my understanding of plastic; not being polymer based.

Very good.

Do you know if I could use this as a mold? How much of each ingrediant do you use? If anyone knows what I can use for a home made mold (not the kind that grows in your refrigerator) please let me know. Thanks.

No this is an example of a very early plastic/glue called Casein. Very good.

thats definitely cheese not plastic. Well documented though.

Once again people confuse plastic for cheese and cheese for something that resembles cheese.

Have you used the 'plastic' in any 'build'? Can it be used & what further process would be required do you think?
