I am just learning about Gelatos made by Faber Castell and wondered if anyone has any experience working with them. Seeing the gorgeous colors and just a few projects left me thinking I just gotta try this new medium. Knowing they are water based, works with water color pencils etc. is great but I want to hear from you experienced gals who've worked with them. Are they worth the investment? Thanks to you all!
I love my Gelatos. I love to apply them and then use a water brush with water to go over and it looks so lovely like watercolors but are very vibrant. I also love to color on a stamp directly and mist and stamp.
I have been going to all the links you gals provided me and have been having a ball watching and learning about these new products from Faber Castell. i can't wait to jump in with some watercoloring projects of my own. Thanks so much for your direction.
I recently won some Gelatos from Faber-Castell! NOW, I'm working on getting the rest of the Gelatos colors along with some of the other Faber-Castell goodies they offer! YOU'LL LOOOOOOOOOOVE THEM!!!!!!!!!! Check out their blog here & you'll find tutorials & what you can do with the Gelatos!!!!!!! AND they have GIVE-AWAYS.....!!!!!!!!
Check here: Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft I have some cards made with Gelatos on my blog too!
I have been collecting the Gelatos for sometime now. I love using them mostly for Art Journaling and creating backgrounds. I also like to use the Gelatos to create water color images with my stamps. These are so so fun to use. Give them a try!!
Gelatos are fun and so are the cheaper priced gel sticks. I cannot tell the difference in how they look or preform. I have several projects and videos on my blog: gelatos | Search Results | Thefrugalcrafter's Weblog BAM! bookstores has the metallic and regular gel sticks (sets of 6 and 12) in clearence for $3 and $5 so it is a great way to try them for cheap

I don't think they are much different than water colour crayons, water based markers or other water colour mediums but they are nice and if you don't have those, a good investment. I find the colours to be a bit bright myself.
Is there a way to stop them from remaining water soluble? Once they are dry, can you re-activate them with water, or heat dry them? Sometimes you want things that are no longer runny when new things get put on top. ?????
Well, after watching videos and seeing all the beautiful samples, I have decided this is not a product I need. I think I can get a similar effect if I wanted with the products I have. I am trying to use what I have, weed out what I don't use, and not buy more stuff just because it is out there.
