Just FYI, before the Gelli Plate - and all the recipes people subsequently came up with to make their own - a gelatin plate was just that - plain gelatin. That's why it had a shelf life. You could keep it in the fridge for just so long before it broke down.

That's what the woman on the blog I linked was comparing her Gelli Plate to - a plain gelatin plate.

Bohodiva - be very careful about using anything at all abrasive on your plates. Once they are scratched, that's it. If I have bits of paint that won't come off, I brayer some paint on thinly, put down a piece of paper and let the whole thing dry. When I pull the paper up, the crusty bits will come along. Usually. The roughest thing I will use on mine is a paper towel.
