Stamping with Gelatos

by Rose Ann Reynolds

Learn how to stamp with gelatos.


  • Solid image stamp

  • Gelatos

  • Misting bottle

  • Cardstock

  • PITT Artist Pen


  1. Step 1

    Mist your stamp with water.

  2. Step 2

    Color stamp with Gelato colors of your choice.

    If you are finished coloring your image and it looks a little dried out, you may need to give it another light mist.

  3. Step 3

    Stamp your image onto card stock.

  4. Step 4 (Optional)

    Add detail to your images with PITT artist pens if desired.

    If you need to fill in any voids on your images, you can do that by scribbling a little Gelato gel on your palette, and use a Water Brush to pick up the color and paint it where it's needed.

  5. Step 5

    Finish card.

Beautiful card! Just wondering, what kind of paper will work when you use Gelatos? Can you use white card stock or does it work only with watercolor paper? I am new at this technique. thanks for any help. Also would like to see more viedos on the use of Gelatos. thanks!

I bought some Gelatos because of this, and I wonder what else I can do with these...

I have a question about the you have to use something to "seal" them when done on a card, like modpodge or clear gesso?

Mary, no need to seal.
