Tammy - I just ordered some from Dianne in the USA...she does ship to Australia. It will cost you US$12.95 for postage plus the cost of your impression mats.

I can't wait to get mine and start playing!!

I too am ordering a set of these and can't wait to try. Have you all thought about painting the back side of artificial plastic leaves and letting them dry and pop off on their own? Is that even possible?

As for flavoring - since water is added why couldn't sugarfree drops be used to sweeten and some plain old flavorings from the market? Just a thought! icon_smile.gif

I haven't tried it yet, went and bought some though. (not much of a selection of colors, that is for sure) I think we can play with them though - use what colors come in s/f jello and manipulate them some with the gels we use. I wonder if your idea will work - need to give that a try - would defiantley open up the flavor/color combos big time!

The leaves might work, I will have to see if I can find some to try it out on - if anyone else tries, let us know how it works out!

What I did try was NOT coloring the gelatin - just using some rainbow pixie dust in it - letting it dry, then before making the bow pieces, I took a tiny paintbrush - brushed the very edges of the bow piece, and dipped those edges in the rainbow pixie dust again - so the bow is like clear, with sparkles all through it, and the edges of each bow are really sparkly. I will post a pic, I am not sure it will show in the picture though.

I also put lorann oil in it, just a couple of drops - it made it smell better, but it still tastes bad. icon_razz.gif

Here is the link for the clear bow -

Loucinda - that clear bow is exquisite! It looks very clear and white - is that how it really looks, or does it have that beige look of the gelatin? Looks like something that would be put on a wedding package.

Lou, the clear bow is gorgeous! When you put the pixie dust on the edges, what are you brushing the edges with first to make it stick--more gelatin??

Wow Loucinda...The clear bow is AWESOME! Great Job!

Yes, the bow is very clear....not yellow at all. In the sunlight and the lights in the kitchen at night, it just goes crazy with the sparkles!

For the edges - I took a very tiny paintbrush, and some very warm gelatin, painted just the very edge (about 1/4 to 1/3 of the length of the bow at a time) put some of the pixie dust on a piece of wax paper - gently "dipped" the freshly brushed gelatin edge in that pixie dust....then went back and kept "painting" the edge and dipping it until both sides of the bow were done. I let it set a few minutes, then formed the bow sections...then just made the bow as the directions say to do.

Sorry it took so long to post, this is a busy cake week for me! (which is a good thing!) icon_biggrin.gif

When I did the butterflies, I used thinned piping gel on the edges to adhere the pixie dust. That works good too.

Yes it dries but you only need a TINY bit. It gets covered up with the dust which reduces the "gooey" factor. icon_biggrin.gif

Is pixie dust and disco dust one in the same, I just ordered $40.00 worth of disco dust, and would be most upset if it is the wrong thing!

Lucinda, your clear bow is beautiful.
