Ok guys, I had never heard of this technique! How AWESOME! Im getting all excited about it, but unfortunatly the closest grocery store to me is 25 minutes away and the baby is sleeping so Im not going out. lol. I DO however, have some sugar free strawberry gelatin in my pantry. Is that usuable at all? Or do the other ingrediants in it change the texture of it? I really want to try it, like, NOW. lol. If its not usable, why is that? icon_smile.gif

Diane said to use only plain gelatin. I am sure it has something to do with the sugar (or sugar sub.) that is in it. BUT - if you have it - I guess you can't hurt anything if you give it a try!!

I checked out the scrapbook stamps at Michaels tonight - I bought a "curly Q" one to try.....none of the ones I looked at looked big enough to mess with for me. (that had butterflies and such on them)

I am making another one of the textures tonight - can't wait to see how it turns out tomorrow!!

OK - I learned a valuable lesson about gelatin last night. I went to color and make a new bow, and there in my bowl of gelatin was penecillan growing!! I remember Diane telling us that it would not keep long if it wasn't dried......yep, it won't.

New batch setting on the counter firming up right now. Dang I hate having to wait!!! icon_sad.gif

Keep the gelatin warmed (I have had to heat mine back up in the microwave for 5 seconds during the process) I really got it by just practicing - by the 3rd time I finally got it right.

I don't think it will ever be "completely" even -there are spots on all of mine where you can see some are "thicker" than the rest - once the bow is made, you really can't see it though.

Thanks Lou... Now I feel better! I have those same spots, but I kept looking at your bow and felt lost because it looks so perfectly uniform! I really appreciate it!

Put the silpat over a heating pad set on very lightly warm to help keep the gelatin at a liquid state while painting it on. Then it should all set up at the same rate.

BWB - how do we take care of the impression mats, do you have any tips for that? I am concerned about usuing soap on them - will that affect the releasing abilities of the mediums used on them?

With mine I just wash them in hot water and towel dry them. I don't use soap on anything plastic (impression mats, chocolate molds, and the like.) I also don't scour them with anything. I find soaking in hot water for a few minutes then rinsing in hot water works like a charm. I also towel dry them immediately so they don't get those annoying spots on them. Hope that helps some! icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks - I had not used these types of impression mats before, so I wasn't sure. I vaguely remembered you weren't supposed to clean them with soap - thanks for filling me in! I have already bought a nice stiff folder to keep them in too.

I am putting you on my cake buddy hero list too. icon_wink.gif
