monkey butter plastics.

Milk Cameo:

Techniques for producing organic materials enable the fabrication of plastics made from human or animal milk by solidifying their casein content. The `Perle de lait' range of jewellery imagines a new set of personalized post-natal objects. The breast-feeding mother sends a feeding bottle full of her milk to a laboratory where it is transformed into a gem-like substance that can be mounted on a neck-piece or any other form of jewellery.

    That technique's been around for a long time. The windows in gunner's bubbles of WWII-era bombers were made from casein.

    Post-natal placenta sandwich parties and now this.
