http://www.sugarartbytami.com/tutorials/Gelatintutorial.pdf And has it worked out for you? I don`t know what i`m doing wrong, It says to mix 2 parts water to one part gelatin, The geltain I buy comes 4 envelops in one packet, Which is one Tbs in each envelop. So how much water are you using? maybe thats what I`m doing wrong

If the gelatin measures 1 tbs then you would use 2 tbs of water. You are using double the amount of water based on the amount of gelatin used.

Thanks, Myslady, I tried that but it did`t work, The gelatin did`t melt, I dont know, Maybe the water was`t hot enough, It says the water should be hot, But not boiling,Guess I`ll have to keep trying, But it gets so frastrating after a few times of trying.

You could try melting it in a pan, just be careful to not let it boil.

You could email Tami. She is very helpful. She does DVDs for Yummy Arts and one of them features the bubbles.

I cant open the tutorial right now but can share my knowledge about gelatin. Gelatin has to be bloomed (the spongy look) in cold water. Once it blooms it is heated or added to something hot and stirred in the mixture to prevent clumping. Jello is the opposite of this.
