Use your Gelatos® like paint - canvas with Kasia Krzymińska


Hello everybody, Kasia Krzymińska here. With my last blog post as a guest designer I want to show you one of my biggest works I made in last weeks. And I have to admit that I'm proud of myself, yes I am. It's not about the result but about the process. I'm happy I finally tried something else, something that I always wanted to create.


So I started with canvas, few pieces of papers and gesso.


I created bold red lines using Gelato® and wet brush. I need to tell you that this part was my favorite. Gelatos® works perfect with dry techniques but are also amazing when you add some water. That's exactly what I call "pleasure of creating".



I doodled with Pitt Artist Pens - as always :)


Then, to add shadow to some elements on my work, I played with Art Grip Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils and water. Here is the result:

Love this! did you just keep layering up and adding the other paper and photo? of the woman? with mat medium? this is an amazing work of art. You should be really happy and proud of yourself. Tempted to have a play myself.

    So beautiful! What wonderful texture you got with the bricks and I love the soft watercolored flowers! And I learned that you can use the waterbrush to take color directly from the Gelatos - that's so good to know! Thanks so much for sharing!

  • Ruby C on Mini Book Cover

    Wonderful cover. Great Tutorial. I like how you mixed several different colors of gelatos to get the color you wanted for the brick wall and drew your own basket weave. Lovely colors. So bright and cheerful.

  • Jean Marmo on Butterfly Love

    Wow - this is so cool! Love the texture in the background and how you used the gelatos!
