Lotion bottle?

    I'd love to be able to print a bottle to hold lotions.

    Is it possible to print a bottle out of SFP and coat it to make it watertight and "reasonable" foodsafe?

    Or using either Fine Detail Plastic and Frosted Detail Plastic?

    What stonysmith just wrote. Also, the nylon material will probably be stiffer than the typical
    blow-molded polyethylene bottles (assuming you want the squeeze-bottle type) and the
    detail materials too brittle. If you aim for the dispenser-type instead, ceramics would be a
    natural choice (with the plastic pump mechanism bought elsewhere or cannibalized from
    some other lotion bottle)

    Thanks for the replies.

    From what I read, Strong and Flexible, although not as flexible as normal bottles, should still be flexible enough, and would probably not be a problem to hold lotions (no alcohol, no risk of microbial growth, no need for cleaning).

    So the last remaining question would be... is there a way to make it watertight, some kind of sealant maybe?
