Watercolors are a beautiful and popular painting technique. “Watercolor with Gelatos” is a new set by Faber-Castell that helps introduce people to the technique of painting wiry gelato-based watercolors.
This kit comes with eight vibrant colors and a plastic tray that gives artists all they need to begin creating mixed media pieces. The set also comes with a journal that includes easy to understand instructions and artistic suggestions. With this set, you can learn watercolor techniques using creamy pigments that easily glide on smooth surfaces and can be used with multiple watercolor techniques to create fun Mixed Media effects. The fourteen-page booklet shows you how to create floral and gemstone designs and hand lettering using our Gelatos, Deluxe Water Brush and silicone craft tray.
Pros and Benefits
The pigments in this set are bright, beautiful, and react perfectly to water. They can be implemented in a number of ways and create gorgeous patterns. The blend together beautifully and a single pigment can fade out exquisitely. They dry fairly quickly and do not lose their vibrancy.
Cons and Drawbacks
This set can be quite messy to deal with and given the professional-grade quality of the items it is best if used by older teens or adults rather than children. However, other than that, it is hard to find a flaw with these excellent tools.
Fun Additional Ideas
This set is a great way to sharpen your artistic skills and open up conversations about watercolor techniques and famous artists who used the mediums.
“Watercolor with Gelatos” by Faber-Castell retails for $24.95. To learn more, visit the official website.
