Carol Jo Primus, who said:

“My newest craft discovery is papercrafting. I have always loved office supplies, art supplies, etc. Now, I have found a way to make creative gifts for loved ones without breaking the bank. I get so many compliments on taking the time to create something from the heart. I can’t wait to discover gel printing!”

And the original post from the GIVEAWAY was (thank you to the 47 crafty readers who want to try Gel Plate Printing the MaryJane way):

In the Aug/Sept issue of MaryJanesFarm, “The Experiment” (on newsstands July 14), we led you here to my daily journal for a chance to win a free sample of our ChillOver Powder. Over the years, we’ve given you lots of ideas for yummy concoctions using ChillOver Powder, my gelatin alternative. Looks like gelatin. Tastes like gelatin. But it isn’t. It’s better! My innovative ChillOver Powder is for all the people who grew up loving gelatin desserts but gave up on them, knowing their animal origin.

But recently, Megan discovered a new craft using ChillOver Powder: gel-plate printing. “After purchasing a commercial gel plate and spending some time ‘printing’ with it,” Megan says, “I quickly understood what folks-in-the-know were raving about. But I couldn’t stop thinking how easy these plates might be to make myself, so I took my newfound craft to another level: the kitchen. With a sense of adventure, I tied on my apron and experimented with MaryJane’s ChillOver Powder, our gelatin substitute. The result? Well, let’s just say the proof was in the printing.”

Find step-by-step instructions for gel-plate printing in the “Farm Life” section of the Aug/Sept issue. And for a chance to win a pouch of ChillOver Powder, tell me about a new craft you’ve discovered in the comments below. We’ll toss your name in a hat and draw one lucky winner in mid-September, when the Aug/Sept issue expires on newsstands. Stay tuned for more magazine-related giveaways!

    OMG. One of my readers (B) sent me over here. This is FANTASTIC! As an avid gelli printer and animal lover, this is fantastic. I’ve made homemade gel plates and the gelatin (which has always grossed me out) stunk to high heaven! No wonder, given what it’s made from. Artists don’t really like to use products that make them want to throw up 🙂

    So I’m very happy to learn of your invention. And happy to see art and your work crossing paths.

    Congratulations Carol! This project sounds like a lot of fun and you will love using ChillOver powder for all of your cooking needs that require a gelatin like ingredient. It works awesome for canning and preserving too! No more pectin and you can adjust the sugar down so you have a better fruit flavor come through.
