2 teaspoons agar
1 cap of glycerin

Observations: Within 30 mins agar has hardened
At first the solution is too thick with a crumble like texture
After a day it has a jelly like feel, shrunk a little
After 2 days the samples have shrunk half in size

Agar feels to be better use for coating fabric than gelatin

3 packets of gelatin
1 cap of glycerin

1/2 cup of water dyed with tea
