Today the design teams are playing with Faber-Castell Gelatos. If you are not familar with Gelato Colors they are an emollient-based water-soluble medium that glides smoothly onto nearly any surface to create rich swaths of pure color. They may be blended without water using your fingertip or a blending tool, or with water using a paintbrush or damp cloth. They are often referrred to as 'smooth as butter" or like 'painting with lipstick', but there is no oily residue and their water-soluble qualities make them very compatible with other mediums. Use on all types of paper, cloth,canvas, wood and other porous surfaces as well as rubber, foam and clear stamps. They are available in 22 yummy opage colors and 6 shimmering metallics. They are light fast, acid free,archival, odorless,watersoluble,permanent and work great on dark surfaces.
Gelatos Colors as a 'Dry" Medium – because of their creamy consisitency Gelatos can be used as is, without water, for rich swaths of color covering large surfaces or blended edges on cards and pages.
For basic blending – lay down swaths of solid color and blend together using your fingertup, a Q-Tip or a blending stump.
For edging – draw color along the edge of a card or page and then use a blending tool to fade color inward. Gold or neutral colors are great for creating an antiqued or grunge effect.
