Did you add your own the insulation, an additional product, with the space blanket or did you find a blanket that had the insulation sandwiched between the mylar layers? I'm thinking my best quick and cheap and temporary option is simply two layers of small bubble wrap wrapped around the pail, about 7 feet long and a foot or so high. The air bubble have reasonably good insulating properties and the wrap can be removed and rinsed off for re-use. Plenty of bubble wrap in my basement. Might try that if I decide to redo my last few lanterns.
