Gelatos & Gesso Background Technique
Hello, Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft fans!
Stacey here with a background technique using Gelatos and Gesso! It still amazes me how some coloring with Gelatos and a few swipes of Gesso creates the most BEAUTIFUL results...and yet, it's so simple to do!
Using the Aqua Double Scoop Gelatos and Turquoise Gelatos, I colored a piece of patterned paper in a streaked pattern.
I took a waterbrush and blended the two Gelatos for a subtle water-colored look.
Next, I placed a striped stencil over the water-colored paper and hold firmly with fingers while applying Gesso with a foam brush.
Apply the Gesso as lightly or as liberally as you desire, keeping in mind that it is a transluscent medium that will lighten up as it dries.
Gently lift the stencil from the paper and see the gorgeous results.
For some added color, I created a well of diluted Gelatos to use as on my floral stamp, then stamped over the flower with an outlined image with the Black Stamper's Big Brush.
Supplies Used: Gelatos, Double Scoop Gelatos, Stamper's Big Brush
