.Gelatine Formula - For a large Pyrex bowl
525g Sorbitol Solution
210g Gelatine Powder
2g Zinc Oxide Powder
Mix liquids together in one bowl. Mix powders together in another bowl.
Mix powders with a small amount of the liquid first, then when mixed, add the rest of the liquid, this will help it disperse easier.
Add the rest of the liquids and heat in a microwave for 2mins at a time stirring between heating until the crystals in the powder have gone.
Colour using gelatine pigments, oil powder, food colouring.
Pour out into an ice cube tray, when set store in sealed bag/container.
Reheat to use, careful not to over cook
Wear gloves, it will burn your skin when hot.
Best to make small less colour-concentrated batches of colour by mixing approximately a half a teaspoon of the colour with about half a cup of gelatine, make a red, blue, yellow, brown etc, then when set, tear off little pieces and use these to carefully and slowly add to your heated gelatine as you need to, it will disperse better than adding raw pigment and is easier to control the colour.
Do not over cook your gelatine, this is when it boils and bubbles, it will make the gelatine weaker and darker.
Pre heat your moulds to allow the gelatine to flow when casting.
When cast, wait for the gelatine to begin to set and then put in a freezer to speed up the setting process.
