How do you manage to collect it like that?
I'd be eating it.
Is it just the raw material or has it been "laid"?
Seems to me that if it was active, it would be contraband (i.e. illegal).
Looks nice tho. :kewl:

lol, the gels on display do not contain LSD. They're just for decorative purposes, they also make for interesting conversation. :)

Geltabs are easy to make. Unflavored gelatin is disolved in a small amount of hot water and allowed to cool (one can add food color at this point) Once cool then the liquid is thoroughly blended with the gelatin. This mixture is then poured onto a sheet of glass and dried like those breath strips made by listerine, these would be considered windowpane. Domes are made in the same way, except the gelatin is poured onto a flourescent light difractor with the clear plastic shaped bumps. (spraying a little Pam on first will make the domes easier to remove.) People assume they're stronger, but usually there the same strength as blotter though they keep their potency better than blotter.

Thanks for sharing WLJ ! Nice collection. I made a thread about some artists that do blotter art. I did'nt want to clutter up or hijack your gel thread though.

Very Nice

The gels I've come across have always been bunk.

Obviously that doesn't mean it doesn't work...but I've lost the faith in the gel tabs.

The gels don't melt because only a small amount of water is used, just enough to dissolve the gelatin. Most of water evaporates as the mold sets, and within a few hours it's crystalized. I've seen it done with the Great Lakes brand but Knox works too. But dont' forget to wear your ACID sweatshirt while u make em. ;)

ok ok

I know what I said above, but now the gel tabs are here.

My foaf was wondering if you guys store the gels in the freezer
like you might on most other things (paper, sweetarts, etc)?
