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:

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.

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

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)?
