i have been making mine with 4pkg gelatin 10 TBS water...seems to be working fine......make sure you microwave ten to fifteen seconds (your microwave may take less or more time.) until smooth...my last flowers were a little gritty...so i microwaved it longer to get it smooth...

WHAT EVER YOU DO DO NOT USE EDIBLE GLITTER IN YOUR MIX...I tried this and it made lumpy and wouldnt stick to wire...it is fun to color with edible markers...works just great...cant paint with airbrush paint or put anything wet on them cuz they will get holes...i tried glitter glue but that put a whole in it...lol

Hello, i really love your flowers!! they are gorgeous icon_biggrin.gif i was wondering 2 1/2 parts means 2 1/2 cups of water? and can it be done on crinkled foil paper cause i don't have any veining or texture sheet. how can i cut out the leaves especially the round one which has the gritty edges and the butterfly wings. how do you give petals that little bend?

Sorry for asking so many questions!! its just that they are so fascinated to me!!!! and i want to learn how to make them beautifully icon_biggrin.gif

This technique doesn't work on foil, but if you go to a clay aisle in your local hobby store you will see plastic impression sheets -- try those. You cut the leaves and petals with scissors wrap the gelatin gently around your finger to bend them.

thanx for the quick response, really appreciate it!! what about the quantity? i don't understand 2 1/2 parts to 1 part. I am currently in Jamaica so impression and texture plastic aren't available to me. Can i do it on a glass plate?

Go back and read this entire thread first. It answers most of those questions already and gives hints and tricks in working with the gelatin as well as where to buy the kit.

Okay, let's start here, what exactly are you confused about? How to do the gelatin technique? How to make something specific or the ratio of water to gelatin?
