This week Cathy asked me if I would bring my gelatin plate to the Altered Art Meetup in case there was anyone who didn't get to play with it at the Journaling Meetup last month.
Of course I said YES because I am in true gelatin love. It is wonderful and I don't care who knows about it!
But alas, I realized I am a jealous gelatin lover....... and the more I thought about all the people that would have their hands on MY gelatin plate........ I just couldn't stand it! (*angst*)
So - for this meetup I will show everyone how to mold the perfect gelatin plate for themselves. - and no one will ever be without something to do on a Friday night again!
Of course as is the tradition at our meetups everyone is always welcome to work at their own pace on their own project. Please don't let my melodrama keep you from joining us and doing what you want to do. We are a flexible group who like to be creative and have fun first and foremost.
I am still working out the logistics for how I will 'cool' the gelatin down. If I find a way to do it so that everyone can have a finished plate at the end of the evening I will publish a supply list.
Thanks guys - I will see you on Friday.
Sharon has informed me that we have refrigeration at our new location. Below you will find a supply list.
7 packages of flavored gelatin. (Knox or store brand) under $4.
12 oz of pure glycerine. This can be found at Wal-Mart next to the alcohol (rubbing not drinking), Walgreens in the beauty lotion aisle, Whole Foods in cosmetics by the Shea butter and coconut oil) under $10.
A container with a flat bottom and low sides to use as a mold.( I use a square or rectangle glass baking dish or plastic container from the dollar store. A non-stick cookie sheet with low sides is also an option and you won't have to remove the gelatin when printing.)
Spatula or 'stirring stick'
2 cup measuring cup
Medium mixing bowl
