# Does GEL-LAY needs to stay moist?

POROLAY GEL-LAY is a kind of jelly-like material made by exotic filament producer Kay Parthy / CC Products.

It is a mix of TPE and PVA that is supposed to have a jelly-like feeling. Once printed, you need to let your print soak in water for several days to remove all of the PVA, then what's left should have a jelly-like feeling since the PVA will have left many micro-cavities in the object.

However, my initial tests end up producing prints that feel a bit like jelly when wet, but reverts to a sort of cardboard feeling once dry.

Does this material needs to stay moist to keep the jelly feeling or not?

• Wow, Poro-Lay Gel-Lay is expensive ... \$35/.25kg of the stuff ... that's equivalent to$280 for a 2kg spool ... yikes. Nov 19, 2018 at 17:39
