Hi guys!! Has anyone else been using Faber Castell Gelatos on their projects? I would love to see what you've done with them. I started playing with them recently, and made up a little tutorial while learning how to use them You can stop by and check it out on my blog, if you'd like!

I have a couple more tutorials put together using them, that I can't share quite yet.
I would love to see how anyone else is using these fun things

I took a class with Donna Downey las month and used gelatos for the first time ... much fun

I bough a set of them, but haven't played with them on my own yet, so I appreciate any posts with ideas

I ordered it through my LSS ... they hosted a class by Donna Downey that I went to and were offering a 20% discount on all products related tot eh class ... I knew we would be using them so I bought the big set instead of one of the smaller ones

but I'm not really an art journal person ... I like to SCRAP, and I haven't figured out how to use them in LOs as opposed to a journal or collage

We played with a whole mess of different media in the class, and it was very fun, but I don't know how to translate the techniques to scrapping

my favorites were the pan pastels ... very cool, and I'm thinking about getting some, but I feel like I have to use the gelatos first before I can buy a whole new set of stuff ... and I have no place to keep any of it

I was going to ask about the pan pastels too. Who's tried them? There is Donna Downey classes and looks like she uses them alot, but I haven't really looked at them. I don't really need them....or do I?

The Pan Pastels look AMAZING, but they are pricey! Ouch!

Haven't use them yet. Afraid to try! Not very artistic.
