Hi, I don't know how to make a nice gel effect, but if I were you, I 
would experiment with methods used in creating metallic effects to make 
a shiny, 3d looking surface. I have once followed a good tut that I 
think can be useful for your purpose too:

Of course, you will have to change this workflow to make a gel-like 
effect. I suppose that adding some transparency to your layer and using 
proper colors can solve this.
