Watercolor Gelatos plus Video with Rachel Kleinman


I put together a video to show you the full process of making this. If you're having trouble playing the video in this post, please click here to watch the video directly.

Happy New Year to all of you! I wish you a wonderful and artsy 2015! To ring in the new year I'm trying something NEW with my Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos®! I used my Gelatos® Double Scoop® to stamp and watercolor to create a small art print.

I started by coloring my heart rubber stamp with Double Scoop Gelatos in Mango and Metallic Melon. I gave the stamp a couple sprays of water to activate the Gelatos and then stamped it to my watercolor paper. Then I used a brush to drag the color through the entire heart.

I put some Gelatos® Double Scoop  in Black Licorice on my craft mat and picked up the pigment with my water brush. Then I flicked the brush across the paper to get the random ink blob look. You can see in the photo above how shimmery the Metallic Gelatos® look, even once they dry! I really love that look you achieve with the Gelatos® Double Scoop.

The 'love' stamp is colored with Gold Gelatos and Gelatos® Double Scoop Metallic Mint. You'll see in the video that I also add in some Gelatos® Double Scoop in Blueberry to give the heart more definition.


Thanks for joining me and I hope you enjoyed the process video! I've been playing with this technique all week and have several little postcards finished. They are quick to create, too! This entire postcard, including drying time, took 21 minutes! Thank you Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos®!

You can always find more of me at and have a happy and crafty New Year!
