Making Jello Printing Plates...
This is my first attempt at adding glycerin when making
jello printing plates
1.5 Cups Glycerin
1.5 Cups Water
7 packets Gelatin
This recipe makes a 9 x 13 inch plate - 1/2 inch thick
Many times I print with large bontanicals, so made a
JUMBO printing plate 24 x 18 inches
1 Gallon of Glycerin makes 10 batches of the recipe above.
Apparently, the glycerin acts as a preservative so the gelatin
will not mold.
If the plates deteriorate and split from use,
they can be reheated and reset into shape.
p.s. I line my containers with plastic
so the jello lifts out easily when set.
