How to make Gelatin Bows & Flowers - Page 49

post #721 of 881
Thank you Loucinda.

I found were I can order the first book and all the sheets in a webshop in the Netherlands. I'm happy!
Is it necessary/better to have the first book before you go to the second book?

The second book has more "advanced" flowers in it. I would start with the first book for the basics. (the second one has all the recipes and such too though)

If you are making something...say you are using a 1 cup measure....1 part would be one cup, 2 1/2 parts would be 2 and 1/2 cups.

If you are using litre as your measurement, one litre would be one part. 2 1/2 parts would be 2 and 1/2 litres.

Hope that helps!

thank you for clearing that up for me. I have lost my brain. I am working on my gelatin now and I am hoping it will turn out better than my first try. lol

Hi, I made my first attempts at flowers/bows. Please be brutally honest with me with your opinions, as I am considering putting them on a cake for tomorrow.

I'm in the UK and didn't have any access to veiners/templates so had to improvise with acetate. I also didn't have any rainbow/pixie/sparkle dust so had to add colour with lustre dust.

Okay you used acetate and it worked well. Great I will try using that soon. lol

I have done some with single veiners and some small impression mats. I will post mine soon. I have a club meeting on Thursday night and we are learning how to make them. After we put the ones I made together I will take photos and post.

yours look great.

With the acetate I painted an A4 sheet, the first time not so good, it shrivelled up and curled a lot... but the second time I put the acetate on top of a sheet of A3 paper, painted the whole sheet and went over the outline so the gelatin stuck to the paper and acetate. That way the gelatin couldn't shrivel up and I was left with a total smooth sheet of A4 gelatin which I cut up for the bow.

They're gorgeous!! If you don't have Disco Dust to do the edges with but you want to snazz them up a bit, you can trim them with funky scrapbooking scissors to give them a snazzy edge. Just a thought! You did good!! icon_biggrin.gif

Hi, I also made my first flower! I think it's quite nice icon_biggrin.gif

I do have problems with spreading the gelatin over the sheet. Some parts are really thin and some parts are thick. There is also variation in the intensity of the color then.
Does anyone have some tips on spreading the gelatin nicely?

Your flower is gorgeous!! As for the spreading of gelatin, use a flat brush and paint it on in long strokes evenly. That should help. icon_biggrin.gif

Another tip that helps make the gelatin even out is to put the sheets on a heating pad. That way it all stays liquid and warm until you take the impression mat off the heating pad.
