Gelatos and Texture Play

Gelatos-mixed-media-play-carolyn-dube

No matter how bumpy, Gelatos can add color to any texture!  Carolyn Dube here playing with textured areas as I add layers of color to this canvas.  There was even an O.O.P.S. or two along the way.  What is an O.O.P.S.?  It's an Outstanding Opportunity Presenting Suddenly.

 



 

Watch on YouTube. 

The crocheted doily created lots of texture to grab the color while the canvas board provided a subtle texture.  No matter what level of texture you add Gelatos to, you have the flexibility to leave it as it is or to blend it.

 To blend the color, simply rub with a baby wipe or a damp paper towel.  The more you do this, the more blended it becomes.
