I do have watercolor pencils but have yet to try the Faber Castell Design Memory Craft products. I absolutely loved your turquoise and flower color mix experiment. I have to get my colors out and see what I can do now..
Thanks for the inspiration.

Becky Dunham said...

I am so glad you showcased these fun toys today AJ! I have some gelatos, but have never used them as I was not sure how they worked either. Now I can't wait to try them! I definitely need to have the set you are showing above :) I will be on the prowl for all of these at my next craft store visit! Thanks for the chance to win!

I haven't tried them, but hope to get some gellatos and give it a whirl!

Pam said...

I love this. I have some of the assortment colors and like you, just haven't tried them. How cool is this. I also love the sneak peaks. Wondered what the pistels in the middle of the flowers were at the other blog. Thanks so much for sharing. Hope to win. Yea!

Theresa said...

I too have trouble coloring things in. They just never look right to me. I do have gelatos, though, and now I have a new way to try them because so far I haven't had much luck with them either. When I add the water, even a tiny amount, my paper seems to pill.

Thanks for the chance to win. The mixed media set is something that I have not even seen yet. I will have to look into it.

Victoria H. said...

What gorgeous samples of what you can achieve with these products. I have some gelatos and you now inspired me to try them out now.

Maria said...

Sue D said...

I like to color the gelatos on a stamp, spritz with water and then stamp.

I love Faber Castell watercolor pencils. Using these are my favorite way to watercolor.
I do love their big chunky marker with the India Ink. Great coverage. I haven't tried the gelatos yet. Maybe someday. Thanks for sharing.

cardlingwithalex said...

Wow! I haven't used these products before, and to be honest I had only heard of the Aquarell's... I think I might need to keep a better eye out and find out more about these wonderful products - they sure look fantastic, and I love the effect you were able to create with them! The Gelato's look spectacular. Thanks for posting about them.

Lori Aragon said...

Hi AJ! I've heard about this product, but haven't tried them yet. I do love the look of watercolors and the samples you show here :) Thanks also for doing the experimenting with the inks... saves me time lol!
Would love to win :)
Love and blessings, Lori ♥

Donna Simonson said...

Love the cards! Have seen the gelatos used, but haven't gotten any yet. Would love to win any Farber-Castell products. Thanks for sharing your creativity and talent!

Jean McGee said...

For "not having any coloring skills" I would say you did a wonnnderful coloring job on each one of your cards. After seeing them on Cardmaker I had to go back to the top to make sure I read right about your coloring skills.
I have the gelatoes. Last summer when my stamping daughters came for a visit we hhhaaaaddd to use them -so much fun.

Melissa said...

The mixed media set looks inviting. I have a gold and silver geletos that I got in my Dec. Cocoa Daisy kit. They are fun but haven't tried to use them the way you do.

Dee Burns said...

I am not big on coloring at all. However, you make it look super easy with the Gelatos...would love to try them...maybe I will like them as much as you do and make a believer out of me that I can do it too.
I'm new to your Blog and CardMaker magazine.
Thanks for a chance to win.
