Once made, what is the texture like? Also, could you shape this easily..? (Ex. Headlights - at least to go over fondant so it looks shiny like a light-)

What do you use gelatin sheets for?

My one time experience with the gelatin sheets proved the sheets to be like....kind of like the fruit roll ups we used to eat as kids. But it dried all the way not sticky. Basically like a sheet of paper? I'm not doing very well explaining thisicon_sad.gif Sorry. You can cut it with scissors.

I use them all the time. And you don't have to make them. You can buy them at the grocery store ( here anyway). I have even bought organic ones at the health food store.They are quite inexpensive. They are scored already too. I have used them for reflector lights, traffic lights, windows, windhshields etc.. You can wet them a bit so they stick better, cut them and paint on them (to look like reflector lights). I love them! icon_smile.gif

Yes, where? And to the OP you can go back and look in the forum for a topic called "gelatin bows" I think that was the heading. This is an excellent treasure trove of info for gelatin related anything.

I found gelatin sheets at Sobey's and Co-op and Amaranth natural foods.
