Hi everyone! RIta Barakat here with a few techniques using Gelatos!
Did you know that Gelatos work on canvas? They are so versitale! I used a mini canvas album - I dry embossed it and went over the top lightly with Gelatos! They look beautiful on chipboard as well! I used the gold metallic Gelato on top of the colors on the chipboard bird - you can really see
I used the same sponge for the edges of the paper rosette.
Here I used texture paste & Gelatos- depending on what brand you use this is modeling paste, artist spackle, heavy or medium gel. I scribbled on my non stick mat with the Gelatos, added the paste and mixed it up. If I wanted darker colors I added more Gelato to the mat and moved the paste over to blend.
I used a stencil and a plastic knife to spread and set it aside to dry. Depending on which compund you use it can dry pretty quickly.
Here I drew all over the canvas with red and yellow Gelatos, sprayed with water and blended. I wanted more of a subtle finish so I went back over with the white Gelato, sprayed with water again. The felt flower was grey - I colored my non stick mat with red and white Gelatos, sprayed it with water and wiped it up with my felt flower. After it was dry (you can use a heat gun) I doodles on the edges with my PITT® Artist Pens.
