Experimenting with homemade ballistic gel for an upcoming project. I made these two samples before my California trip and let it sit in the fridge for a week to observe a few things.
The batch on the left was made following the Knox gelatin recipe with water. The batch on the right I replaced the water with regular old brown bottle, hydrogen peroxide (3% solution) from the pharmacy.
Right away the water batch was more amber in color and the batch with H.P. was more clear. After a week, the batch made with water has a lot of mold on it but the batch made with 3% H.P. has no mold and is still far more clear than the water batch. Both have the same firmness and consistency.
