3D model description

Prepare the templates for the terrarium base and cover. Here we’re using 3D prints, but you could use wood or clay.
Take a Mayku Cast Sheet from the pack.
Peel the protective film from the top of the sheet. Remember, you can put this into household recycling.
Place the sheet in the FormBox, and start to heat the plastic.
Place the upper template on the centre of the vacuum plate.
Watch the plastic as it ripples at the edges and begins to droop in the middle.
Form the template with the Mayku Cast Sheet.
Allow the mold to cool and gently pop the template out.
Carefully cut away the excess with a pair of scissors.

Make a mold of the lower template in the same way.
Mix some concrete by adding water to the concrete powder.
Pour concrete into the mold to just below the brim.
Shake the mold to remove any air bubbles. You'll see them rise to the surface.
Leave to set overnight.

Gently remove the concrete by applying pressure to the top of the mold.
Leave to cure for 48 hours.

For a smooth surface on the base, place a sheet of coarse sandpaper on the table, and rub the base gently against it.
Now create your mini-world using sculpting clay, models and textured materials.
Place the lid you made earlier on top of your terrarium. They're perfect for decorating or to give as gifts!
