Adding Color

This method you heat up the gelatin

Use 1/4 Cup of gelatin
Add 1 Quart of water & mix thoroughly

Microwave for 2 -3 minutes

(we have an old microwave)

Stir Gelatin again

Add base color of paint, 1 tablespoon

Tint with 1/2 teaspoons of secondary color

Pour gelatin into individual squeeze bottles

Cool Gelatin quickly to 75-80 degrees F

Swirl in cold water (We use the block maker)

Place your finger over the tip, align carefully,

release finger

Start with a thin layer, once this sets up, add another. (this prevents clouding)

I am serious about this, start with a thin layer first, after it sets up add more!

Wait at least 1 hour for Gelatin to set up (Over night is best)

Pack with snow & add cold water until soaked. Since this photo was taken we have switched to a large syringe to add the water.

If you have trouble with any of these steps give me a call, maybe we can help.
