Okay here's a couple things you probably don't want to do.

This is a 80x40 pointy glande mould.

1) the larger the glande the harder it is to roll.
2) for a pointy glande you really want it to be proportionally much longer than the other shapes. 2:1, essentially just gives you a ball with pointy ends. Aerodynamically it's never going to self orient along the spinning access and you'd probably be much better off with a simple hand rolled sphere.

3) something this size uses a lot of clay. almost 200gm in this case.
It'll probably be around 180 ish when dried.
Only real use would be target slinging. And for that a hand rolled ball is much better suited.

4) uses an awful lot of plastic - the mould is pictures next to a 60x20 standard shape mould using almost 5x less plastic. So a lot cheaper to buy and much easier to use.

last pic shows an 80x25 pointy glande, all round a much better shape.

Also - for the record, the pointy glandes are the hardest to roll and the most inclines to have holes at the ends. At least that's what I've found.

Okay here's the results of the first classic shape roller.
This is a 75x35 glande. Uses 110 gms of my air dry modelling clay.
After a day drying, it's down to 104.

I figure probably 90-95 fully dried. This stuff keeps it's weight quite well.

And for the record - every one gets 2 text stamps (same word), I just haven't updated the original post. They are small, easy to lose and very quick and cheap to make, so I always throw in a spare Smiley
