This is the six pack version of the TIRALO brand Molotov Cocktail.



Here's an individual bottle full of gasoline.


This is a detail of the 1000 thread count satin rag and the decorative matches.


Here's a shot of the box sans other objects.


And a little nod to the engraving.


I hope you enjoy it.

So where do you plan to sell these because I can't imagine that will ever pass the hazardous restrictions for shipping.

The perfect gift set for the revolutionary youth of today. Is that really gasoline? I can imagine using it to fill up your lawnmower or snowblower.

Thanks for the great comments! As for selling these items, It's more of a one off art piece. It was really time (and money) consuming to make it and yes, it's really gasoline. I figure that I've actually made money on this project already. When I filled the bottles gas was at $1.50 a gallon...

I figured it was more a piece of art, but you'd probably have a high demand for something like this.  Either way it looks excellent and I say that as someone who is absolutely batty for good packaging.  You should submit these to CMYK, they would looove it.

Great idea, I sent CMYK an email. They're having a competition, but it's for students and recent graduates. Unfortunately I'm not a student or a pro designer, but thanks for the inspiration, I never thought of showing my goods off on that level.

Well done! Very funny. What made you do it? Is it for a display or just for kicks?

Thanks, actually I had the idea for the Molotov Cocktail Gift Box first and that led to the six pack. Ideally, the bourgeois would buy this expensive gift, go home, and throw it against their house, thus destroying everything they own. With the loss of all earthly possessions, established belief systems they have accepted all of their lives can now be rethought, free of outside pressure, allowing them to start anew (...you know, something like that). Then it occurred to me that your average working class joe wouldn't be able to participate in my cathartic experience as I presented it, so I created the Molotov Cocktail Six Pack. Art and ideas for everyone.

If one chooses not to do this immediately, then one can keep the set around the house, very much like one would a good bottle of wine, and wait for the right moment.  Grin
