Add distilled water (300 g/ml) and glycerol (7 g/ml) to the reaction vessel (beaker, or heat resistance pot), then stir until boiling.
Add methylcellulose (15 g) to the mixture stepwise (in small portions) whilst stirring until dissolved into solution, then proceed to add the gelatine (12 g) and stir into the solution.
Reduce the heat of solution to simmering point (65-75 ºC) and stir until homogenous. Remove any lumps or froth with a spatula.
Pour into moulds, once all the solids have dissolved. Then leave to set in the air - once moderately set transfer to the dehydrator at 35ºC for 18-21 hrs.
