I made three lovely batches of carbon gelatin this morning and poured many great tissues. Then this afternoon.... my gelatin did nothing! I mixed 80g of gelatin with 900ml of distilled water and made gelatin then when I started to warm it (in order to mix in the 50g sugar, 15ml ink and 100ml water) the gelatin all settled to the bottom and the water to the top. One thing that I did notice is that the humidity did increase by 10% between the morning and afternoon.
What am I doing wrong!!?? I am following the exact same steps as I did this morning with completely different results. I am flummoxed!
Any tips would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
