I run a 3D jelly art business called Jelly Alchemy. I first learned this art 3 years ago when it was relatively new in Asia. This is now taking Asia by storm! My 3D jelly art journey started with simple floral arrangements. As I continued to practice, it has now evolved to more complex koi fish ponds, birds and characters made out of jelly flowers.
The method used to craft 3D jelly art is quite fascinating. Everything is made upside-down inside a flavored clear seaweed jelly canvas (some people use gelatin). Hot liquid colored jelly (usually coconut jelly for my work) is injected into a clear canvas using specialized tools. Each flower is created petal by petal (as for the birds, it would be feather by feather!) through this injection method.
Each piece of artwork can take up to 5 hours to complete depending on complexity. It definitely takes a lot of patience to complete it but so worthwhile once you unmould the jelly to reveal the final masterpiece!
Here are some artworks that I have previously done. And yes, they are all edible and delicious!
