From these ingredients, we will get a piece of mastic the size of a lemon. If you need more, increase the layout by 2-3 times.

Let the gelatin swell in water. As soon as the gelatin loses its crystalline form (swells), put it on the lowest heat, stir constantly, not allowing it to boil. Leave the melted gelatin to cool.

Pour 5 spoons of powdered sugar on a board or a large plate. Pour gelatin into the middle and add lemon juice and oil.

We begin to mix very carefully, constantly adding the rest of the powdered sugar. The finished mastic should not stick to the hands. We put the mastic in a bag and take out only small pieces for modeling, because it hardens very quickly.

We paint the finished powdered sugar mastic in different colors with food dyes. To do this, cut off a piece, drip dye into the center and mix until a uniform color.

This type of mastic has the consistency of soft plasticine, so you can sculpt flowers, figurines, and patterns from it. We advise you to try to mold something beautiful for a cake, dessert or confectionery.
