Default gamasol technique

My name is Kat Carmona and I have been stamping for about 15 years. I currently love coloring with Copics but it looks like you can get almost the same effect with colored pencils blended with "gamasol"? I may have that spelling wrong. Where can I learn more about this technique?

Hi Kat!!!

It's a great technique, and we have a tutorial on it here:Splitcoaststampers - Gamsol Magic Technique Tutorial by Cecilia Ross

Miss Meowy - the owner of Cat's Pajamas, one of our member companies - has some great samples in her gallery with this technique like this: Thank you snow much by Miss Meowy - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

If you go to the gallery and search for gamsol or oms you'll find samples. There are other blender solutions as well - the one I use is citrus based and is called Zest-It.

Have fun learning!
