This week Faber-Castell Gelatos™ arrived in my mail.  I had heard so much about these amazing creamy water-soluble pigments that I had to have some in my toolbox of supplies.   Now that I have them what do I do. 

My wonderful mail included Neutral, Reds and Metallic Gelatos™. Also Love Birds and Time Travel templates, Loralie Designs Dressform stamp set and a few more items. 
In my art journal I scribbled the page with Gelatos™ Chocolate, Peach and Butterscotch, then brushed lightly with water to blend. I LOVE the texture I got on the paper I was using. To speed drying I used a heat gun. 
Next using the Time Travel stencil and Gelatos™ Earl Grey I spread the Gelatos™ with my finger into the stencil of the large clock face. 

Then using the Love Birds stencil and Gelatos™ Red Cherry and Guava spread the  Gelatos™ with my finger over one of the birds (Chocolate on the branch portion of the stencil).
I wanted to see how stamping would look on the Gelatos™! I randomly stamped using stamps from the Loralie Designs Dressform stamp set.  I had fun playing, I can't wait to try the Gelatos™ on other types of paper and a canvas.  I will be using Gelatos™ to make backgrounds for cards and other projects!
