How to make Gelatin Bows & Flowers - Page 4

post #46 of 881
Thank you so much Di and Loucinda! I'm dying to try this out now. If it wasn't 12:26 a.m. then I'd be off to the store this minute icon_lol.gif Will definitely be wanting those sheets too...

Maria - yes, you can still cut the thick dry gelatin with scissors, it is just not flexible enough to bend into the shapes needed for the bow.

I am making another one today - painted the impression sheet last night before I went to bed and it was perfectly dry and ready to go this morning. I am taking pics of each step while doing this one.

As far as the color goes, a dab will do! I just put ONE drop of color in the gelatin for the blue bow I posted (and it now my avatar!) I have not tried to do one in a dark color. The one I am working on right now is pink (my favorite color!)

Loucinda,

You will be posting those pics, won't you? I can hardly wait to 'watch' you. Y'all are so generous to share such an amazing and beautiful technique. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Justdi, I don't know if this has been brought up, but you could easily put "Learn to make gelatin bows & butterflies" and your site in your signature so people can see it as you do your everyday posts. (At least I post everyday, I guess I can't talk for everyone. icon_biggrin.gif) You could get traffic to your site & I don't think anyone would feel like you were pushing your product.

Maria,

I love the idea of using the gelatin for stained glass windows! That would be gorgeous! And windows on a house...such great ideas.

Maria...we must've been posting about the same time!! That is a really good idea! It would work too - and be much better than using melted sugar/candy that dries hard and brittle. Thanks for sharing your ideas!!

I have close ups of those exact cakes!! (they were the examples they brought to the DOS) ~ they are so pretty. I really love the clear flowers with just the sparkle on them.

Thank you so much!! What an exciting technique - amazing results. Okay, so is there a 24 hr help line for CC addicts (CCA?), cuz let's face it, we all know what we all will be playing with this weekend. Late into the night we'll all be listening for that new "gelatin releasing from the impression sheet" sounds..... SO cool! Thanks again for sharing. BTW, lusterdust on flowers?
