After watching several fun Youtube videos on making gelatin prints and reading MMSA's step-by-step demo, I totally wanted to try this with the kids. "What is this?" they asked, poking at it. "It's not for eating," I said, handing them the brayer and paints.
Our Tofu Girl quickly moved beyond the single colors and came up with tri-colored prints. She has a great eye for color and design and seems to have a lighter hand with the paint. Her prints turned out beautifully, and she had more fun than her brother did. He liked the art experiment but decided this was not his favorite. I agree with Tofu Girl; gelatin is not just for dessert anymore!
