Coloring with Gelatos
Want to add a dash of color to your stamped images, backgrounds and card accents? Want to do it easily and with little mess or fuss? Then Gelatos are the way to go. No, they're not an Italian ice cream—sorry!—but they are a yummy way to add color to your cards and paper-crafting projects. What's even better is that despite names like Cotton Candy and Margarita Mix, these Gelatos are calorie-free!
What are Gelatos?
Gelatos are handy little pigment sticks of rich, vibrant color. The color inside these compact tubes is a creamy consistency. They look like a lipstick … and you can apply them to paper the same way.
Because they're so easy to apply, they're ideal for making backgrounds. Simply glide one across your paper for instant color. You can mix them with a wet medium like water or gesso, stamp with them, spritz, spatter and blend them. You can even watercolor with them!
Gelatos are acid-free, odorless (which is good for those of us who craft in a small room) and lightfast, so they can be used on scrapbook pages and framable art as well as cards, art journals and gift tags.
They might not be as tasty as ice cream, but they're definitely just as tempting once you start exploring the creative possibilities!
