Gelatin question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I am trying to make something that will mimic organza and I was wondering if I can take the mixture for gelatine butterflies add some luster dusts so it has the right sheen, let it dry in a thin sheet and then drape it, or will it be too brittle once dry?  Can it be softened with a hair dryer to make it more flexible so I can shape it?  I'm trying to get the effect of a train on a wedding dress.

what about making a mold and apply the gelatin to the mold then let it dry in the shape you want the final product to look like

if you had your own tv show what would be your favorite commercial/sponsor

i think i'd like ghirardelli and hershey for starters...

Get sheet gelatine.  Soak it in water and shape it to the final shape on a form.  Let it dry and then brush with luster dust.

 

Sorry but gelatine has to be soaking wet to be soft.  Otherwise it's very brittle.
