Word Art with the NEW Iridescents II Gelatos Colors & PITT Pens


Hi everyone, Mou here with a word art tutorial using the newest set of Gelatos colors - Iridescents II and PITT artist pens! Mermaids are everywhere these days - from birthday cakes to crochet patterns to Halloween costumes. I wanted to hop on this trend train and create a mermaid word art using a quote by Anthony T. Hinks.

To do this project, you'll need the following -

Faber-Castell Gelatos® Colors Iridescents II

India ink Pitt Artist Pen Hand Lettering 6ct wallet blues

Goldfaber 6 Ct. Graphite Pencil Tin

Collapsible Water cup

Other - watercolor paper (trimmed to 4.5 x 6 inches)

Now, let me walk you through the steps.


Rub the Gelatos colors on the paper as shown.


Blend the colors with water using the paint brush included in the Gelatos set.


Draw a mermaid tail lightly with pencil. Color around it with more Gelatos.


Sketch some details to the tail as shown.


Write the words with the PITT pens, varying colors, size and style of handwritten fonts. Mix things up. Be loose and don't worry too much about making it perfectly perfect.

Make some marks around the page also with the PITT pens to finish.

I hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and try playing with Gelatos and PITT pens together in your word art!
