Every Wednesday on our forums we have a WCYDW - What Can You Do Wednesday where the creative team shares with you all wonderful tutorials and techniques  that you can  try and learn from . This  week it was Tammy's turn and oh my wow .. a  wonderful tutorial on making your  own gelli plate  - so sit  back and  enjoy : 

Ok so here is what you're gonna need to make your Gelli plate! :)

Glycerin- 2x 6oz bottles = 12 oz
Knox Gelatine- 7 packs (small box will do)
Sugar- 6 tablespoons
Water - 1x 8oz bottle drinking water. MAKE SURE ITS COLD

2x mixing bowls microwave safe holds and will hold 7 cups
Container - You plan on storing your Gelli plate (Needs to have smooth bottom no marks or ripples)
Mixing spoon- If you're worried about the ones you already have (I would use plastic or metal ones)
Brayer- for playing later!
Get your 2 bowls out in one pour your cold water in and mix in your packs of Knox Gelatine. I did this 2 at a time till I used all 7 packs. Mix until no clumps exist.

Then get your other bowl and mix your sugar and glycerin together. Mix until smooth.

Now combine one bowl into the doesn't matter which way you go and heat in microwave until mixture is clear and hot. Pour into your container and let sit on counter for 6 hours. Then play! :)
