Gelatos are a multi-purpose mixed media medium. Compact, acid-free pigment sticks glide on creamy smooth for vibrant color and coverage. All Gelatos blend easily with or without water and you can transform opaque Gelatos Colors into translucent tints or mists with water. They are excellent for adding color and sheen to any surface, including paper, canvas, chipboard, wood, fabric, ribbon, journal boards and much more. These 15-Piece Gelatos sets include 12 hand picked colors with three useful application tools (two smudge sponges and one paintbrush). Choose from pastels, brights, metallics, iridescents and translucents collections. Housed in a clear storage case, these color sets are easy to transport and keep organized. Gelatos can be mixed with or without water and work beautifully when used to tint gesso, whipped spackle, texture luxe and other mediums.
