Faber Castell Mix & Match
Gelatos provide a water soluble creamy vibrant pigment. These luscious Gelatos crayons glide with a creamy, vibrant colour and blend beautifully with or without water. They work great on surfaces like paper, canvas, wood or textiles. Whether used for painting, stamping or as spray, they are sure to provide limitless possibilities to spark your creativity!
When available, we offer packs of 4 sticks, with a brush and stamp, in a selection of colours or an assorted pack of 12 colour sticks.
They are water-soluble, acid free, odourless, mix easily to form liquids, and can be applied to paper, fabric, canvas and wood. They are ideal for use with stamps.
Gelatos can be applied directly or mixed with water. The wide stick is ideal for large-scale work.
Blending: apply colour and blend using your fingertip, cotton bud or paper stump to create colour gradients.
Edging: apply the colour roughly to the edge of the paper and blend it in towards the centre.
Wet Techniques: Gelatos produce beautiful washes when mixed with water. You could also dissolve a piece of Gelato in water and use it as a colour spray.
Stamping: Gelatos work brilliantly with stamps. Moisten the stamp, apply colour with the Gelato and press onto the surface.
Dripping: apply Gelatos to the paper and moisten it. Tip the paper gently and let the colour run downwards.
