There is an interesting thread at POTN on how to get a free set of gels for your flash, and how to use them. I've ordered them and will post more details once I check them out. Just posting the placeholder here so I don't lose the information source.

All gels will melt in this usage. Even the gels that come with the Nikon SB-800 melt after a bit of use. They tell you this in the instructions. I will make sure that it is not actually touching the face of the flash head, which would be where you'd have a problem.
