Making the matchbox car
Silver airbrush to give it a clear looking sheen
To make a bag- find a container fill up then swish around let dry and add another coat. The more coats the more cloudy.
To make
1 pack gelatin to ¼ cup water cool to bloom 5-10 min
Knox gelatin is pig
great lakes brand is beef
Can order some on line that is really clear

Cook in 15 sec intervals until no longer cloudy see white foam

Add color after microwave Use airbrush color Add1 drop stir Can dust after

Wait for bubbles to rise to the top create a thin film as it cools then lift film off then it is ready to use

Pour onto plastic good for gelatin not silicon mats (plastic cars, cutting boards)
don’t brush swish then pour off excess
Can do brush thicker
Can add wire to keep shape
30 to 22 gauge to imbed prefer 30 g
Can preset the wire before pour let dry then cut off excess wire
If want thicker let dry 10 min then do again

Let cool almost 2 hr dip wire then attach that to the gel sheet
Do you need to worry about shrinkage dip and attach prevents the buckling from shrinkage

Have to have patient 8-10 hours for it to dry
To speed up
Oven with light on
Fan on low
Container with rice
Once dry cut out with scissors
Punches don’t work cracks it
Stick together with piping gel not water will dissolve
Christy put wafer paper and disco dust while wet

If try to paint after it is dry use Everclear so evaporates quickly

Time over 8:51pm
