Faber-Castell Gelatos with Tiffany Johnson!

Hello everyone!

I have a super fun video today to share with you the AWESOMENESS that is the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos! Faber-Castell has been around since 1761, and has created this Design Memory Craft line to make designing with color simple! First, you pick your color that inspires you. Then, choose a medium. Mix and Match to continue creating! The color coordinating palettes gives you the freedom to design your projects knowing the colors will flow beautifully together!



Tiffany Johnson has created this video to inspire your use of Gelatos! Gelatos are luscious acid-free pigment sticks that glide on creamy vibrant color and blend beautifully with or without water. Check out all the different ways Tiffany uses them! She's also on the Design Memory Craft Design Team, so check out her blog for more tutorials and projects!



Here are some images of creations Tiffany has made using Gelatos:





Ingredients from the video to make some of these projects:

Thanks again to Tiffany for sharing her talents and experience so we can all understand the magic of Gelatos even more! I hope you learned something, and picked up some excitement to use this product!

  22. There was something like Gelatos when I was a kid (maybe in the 60's) but the tube was softer plastic and you just squeezed the paint medium out to use it. Anyone remember that?
