How to Get the Most Out of Gelatos

Tutorial How to Alter a Clipboard


Hello Giovanna here, today I show you a tutorial how to alter a clipboard that you can use as a calendar or to take notes. I had fun with texture and coloring, and in the video I show you also how to colour tissue paper, so thin and delicate, with Gelatos®, to get a pastel look even with the boldest shades.

Some details of the texture, got with Whipped Spackle and the super sparkling Glass Bead Glitter Gel:




Couldn't resist to make a second version, the other Gelatos metallic colours from the set where so tempting, I thought they would look gorgeous together, and I was so right!



Which one is your favourite: the delicate, Springish one, or the warm, Winterish version?

Materials I used:
Gelatos® Colors 15ct: METALLICS
Whipped Spackle
Glass Bead Glitter Gel
Stencils 10ct 101 Collection
Stencils 10ct 201 Collection
Gelatos® Tool Set
Essential Textural Accents Gesso
Essential Textural Accents Gel Medium

Such fun


These are just GORGEOUS Giovanna and I LOVED your video tutorial too. It is such a delight to listen to you teach. I can't decide which one of your clip boards I like the best - they are WONDERFUL. Thanks bunches for sharing your creativity. j.

I absolutely love your clipboards. I was wondering if the color stays put or if it rubs off when you touch it.


Thank you for your lovely comments, beautiful ladies!
@Carol Mc, the colors stay, because once dry the Gelatos are permanents.


Bellissimo! Grazie per il videotutorial!!
