Making sand, rocks and pebbles in gelatin is very easy.
Start by preparing some cream color base. Divide the color base into several containers and make different shades of color.
You can add food coloring to change the color of the base or use chocolate, cocoa and caramel products to create better tasting "sand".
Leave the color base in the fridge for a few hours to set completely.
To make sand, cut several pieces from each color and place them in a food processor or blender.
Blend the color base in short bursts until you achieve the desired grain size.
Fine sand can be used to simulate the ocean bottom.
Larger chunks can be used to make an interesting background for flowers.
To make interesting rocks and pebbles. Mix two or more colors in the same container. You can prepare the cream color base and the cocoa color base and mix them to create several different shades of brown.
Use flat containers to create a thin sheet of color that can be cut into smaller chunks.
Give the colors a light swirl and leave them in the fridge to set.
Cut the resulting slabs into smaller chunks and place them in a sieve. Prepare a large bowl of ice water and keep it close.
Submerge the pebbles into warm water to melt the sharp edges off and create realistic looking rocks.
Place the sieve with rocks into ice water immediately to stop the melting process.
Place the melted rocks onto a tray covered with plastic wrap to prevent them from sticking to the tray.
Repeat until all the rocks are melted. Store the rocks in an air-thigh container in the fridge until you are ready to use them.
Use these rocks to complete different gelatin art desserts.
