PLEASE READ!!!
Due to some molding in some users plates omit the alcohol and replace it with glycerin. For Example 3cups water, 3 cups glycerin, 12 Tablespoons gelatin. Adding sugar to the mix will help preserve the plate too so I'm told but I have not tried that yet. I found an alternative recipe with sugar here: http://calligraphycards-shazinoz.blog... if you want to see hers, it was posted after I made this video otherwise I would have tried her recipe first instead of coming up with my own:) http://calligraphycards-shazinoz.blog...

Hey friends! I was overwhelmed by the response to yesterday's video that I had to play a bit more and figured out how to make a non-spoiling gel printing plate, AKA gelatin plastic or a Hectograph. I can't say for sure that it is the same as a Gelli Plate but it works as well as a regular gelatin plate and it won't mold or rot. If it gets too beat up, cut or scratched (used & abused) just clean it and melt it for 1 minute in your microwave on high and reset it, easy peasy! Here is the recipe:
6 Tablespoons geletin (7 packets)
1 1/2 Cups water
1 1/2 cup glycerin
I dissolved the geliten in the alcohol/glycern then added the boiling water but you can just mix it all up and microwave it for a minute, don'tcha love something this easy, I do!
Also, here is UK Maryanne's post about making gelli tools with funfoam (she's stinkin' brilliant!) http://scrappystickyinkymess.wordpres...
And my blog, I hope to have up some finished gelatin print projects this weekend: http://thefrugalcrafter.wordpress.com/ Music credit (if music is present in video) Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com)
