Welcome 1212!! What country are you in? Here in the United States we use plain, unflavored gelatin like Knox or Great Lakes. Do you have that where you are?

I'am from Serbia, we have unflavored it's DR Oetker but it's not liquid i have to mix it with water,
and the part i don't understand is 2 2/1 part of water and 1 part gelatin what do you mean by part.
should i mix gelatin with water as said on bag and make that 1part and add 2 2/1 more water? Thank you for your answer icon_biggrin.gif

Okay I have not used Dr. Oetker but if it's plain, unflavored gelatin it will work. The 2 1/2 to 1 ratio is mixing 1 TBSP gelatin (plain granules, out of the package) with 2 1/2 TBSP water. Stir and let set. You don't want to make the gelatin like it says on the package because you are going to be painting with it, not making Jello like you eat. Does that make sense? icon_biggrin.gif

Hi, I've been reading this thread off an on and decided to just jump in. I tried my first run today and decided to put it in the fridge to see if it will set faster. I painted the gelatine onto some wax paper and some on a glass cutting board as I do not have any sheets to work with. What I'm looking to make are simply windows for a helicopter I'm making. Anyway, the gelatine set rather quickly and peeled off very easily. I had to pull at the edges to lift it but all in all it came off rather nice. I'm not positive what its supposed to look or feel like but the texture was perfect for my windows. Just thought I'd let y'all know it only took about 10 minutes to set. Don't know if this will work for everyone but it did for me. Thanks again for this thread. Can't wait to experiment with gelatine more.

You paint the gelatin onto the butterfly mat, let dry and trim the edges. Then decorate the edging with disco dust and such.

Dianne Simmons sells them -- she's one of two ladies who developed this technique. Here's her website, which has the book and the veining sheets: http://abc.eznettools.net/cakeconnection/index.html

Hi everyone,
ALL OF YOU ARE FANTASIC! I've never taken any formal classes in decorating. Learned all on my own from books and now here. The things I find on here are unbelievable. I have sooooo much to learn. And, like so many of you here. So many toys. Got to have all the new toys. If I get much more there will not be any room left for my husband. Im gonna miss him. LOL
