For the statue mold making, it was a more challenging process that with the Jell-Obama. I wanted to make a mold using 3D design software and a 3d printer. It took several months to find a group that does 3d printing but found the MakerBot Meetup here in the Boston area.
I found a design from Google Warehouse and then worked with my friend Paul to resize and reshape the file. From there, with the help of the amazing Mattew Nowosiadly and Aaron Double of the MakerBot Meetup group, I printed out two prototypes from which I could make my gelatin molds.
The rest is trade secret, except that Ben from Stony Brook Fine Arts was invaluable as always. Hint: you can always get trade secrets out of me if you show up on my doorstep with bag of Jelly Belly jelly beans and incredible patience to listen to me prattle on about gelatin for an hour.
For recipes, The Red Carpet Roll-Ups are made Raspberry/Strawberry juice, gelatin, and gourmet marshmallows.
The Award Gels are made from a lemon drop milk gelatin and they are embedded in Champagne and Goldschlager simple syrup gelatin.
Below are white chocolate gelatins made using the Award mold from England.
There you have it. Until the envelopes are handed out and the dresses are cheered or jeered... may you have an enjellable Academy Award party!
