I am by no means an artist, but I love tools that make me feel like I am! I love to create my own greeting cards and scrapbook designs, and I haven't yet mastered the techniques behind layering color and illustrating with colored pencils and markers; however, I love what Gelatos do for my layouts!
Available in a variety of colors, Gelatos work like a combination of markers and paint, applying dark color but allowing you to blend colors together for an absolutely beautiful and stunning effect. And this Gelatos Kit is a great way to get started in learning how to use and play around with Gelatos. This kit comes with 10 bright Gelato colors, a 24-page illustrated design guide that teaches you dozens of techniques and helps you create a swatch book that you can reference again and again, a Gesso for mixing colors, a paintbrush, drip dropper, misting bottle, floral stamp, a stamp and an 8-page blank swatch journal. Follow the directions to create a swatch book of your own or use the tools and techniques in the Design Guide to help you use Gelatos to illustrate whatever you'd like!
I love the bright colors available in this design kit. I've already made beautiful cards, home decorations, and scrapbook embellishments with my Gelatos kit, and I can't wait to see what else I can make!
If you've been wanting to learn some new illustration techniques, you're going to love what you can do with Gelatos. These paint markers will give you a look unlike anything you've seen before, and will help take your projects to a whole new level!
