Gelatin Plate Hate!

September 30th, 2014

That’s IT, I’m done!

I am going to ask for a real Gelli plate for Christmas this year! I have been testing out recipes every couple days for the past week. None of them like me. I have even had a friend come over to make one with me and she is a baker, so I KNOW she can follow a recipe!

Even though the plates have been disintegrating beneath my fingertip I have been using them till they die! Turning each one into a gelatinous blog of goo! I swear, I don’t know what it is. I have Googled, I have YouTubed, I have G+’d. Nothing is working out for me!

I have mostly been in good spirits though, going into each one with high hopes and coming out happy, having played until the blobs couldn’t take it any more! This last one, I had to scoop its contents up with a spoon! The only good thing about these crash tests has been that the top layer solidifies a bit as I add the acrylic paint. That allows me to play for a few minutes before having to clean it all up.

Here are the pulls I got from the first “plate”:

I didn’t bother to take pictures of the next 3 recipes.

Here are the pulls from the last one. As you can see from the pictures above, it disintegrated out from under me. You would think that I was kneading it like dough, but I was actually very gentle due to the previous messes!

I will definitely be buying a real gelli plate around Christmas time!

Thank-you for stopping by!
