I don't know, I was thinkingg of just pouring the little lumps straight into the cup? Having never touched the stuff, I don't really know what the cinsistency of it is, etc. I guess I'll find out.
Aerogel has the consistency of glass, since it is basically glass. If you drop it, it will shatter. You will need to use a bonding agent and foam medium to make a paste with it.
When you get it, let me know and we can brainstorm some ideas together. And if you can spare a cap full of granules, I would love to examine the stuff myself.
