Ok. I will admit.
I am an addict.
I cannot ever have enough art supplies.
When I hear of a new medium, I'm instantly on the computer, reading all about the product...
Reviews, how it works, etc.
My dear friend, Lori, told me about Gelato paint sticks.
I liked what I read. I even watched some fun You Tube tutorials.
Yes, I had to try them out for myself!
They arrived just yesterday so I haven't had much time to really play with them, but I did dabble a bit.
I ordered the set of 28 colors, directly from the Faber-Castell website. (One day I will figure out how to link you up... I'm using the Blogsy app on my iPad). The Gelatos arrived in a lovely, floral pattern box.
They look like Chapstick!
You may use them wet or dry.
I did both on this quick painting.
A closer look-
The colors are wonderful! Some are even metallic.
You can rub them in, layer the colors, apply them directly to a rubber stamp and stamp with them.... Then spray water onto the stamped image for a quick watercolor image! I could go on and on about various uses and techniques...
Which I will be saving to try out with Lori in person!!!! She ordered a set too and we have set a date for a girls' weekend in July!
Go check out the Gelatos!
