fun with gelatos

fun with gelatos

Its time for some fun with Gelatos by Faber-Castell/Design Memory Craft. What are they you ask? Just a fabulous color tool that can open up a ton of creative possibilities!

I made a video for you with a quick look at Gelatos, a brief and very basic how-to along with examples of what they can create in your hands. Over the next several days, I will be sharing a lot of videos, projects, and creative ideas!

Direct link for those that need it: Gelatos Overview

Extra bonus points if you actually count how many times I say “beautiful color.” Seriously, its bad. :)

AND what fun would this be without a giveaway! I have two sets of Gelatos to send to a lucky reader! Simply leave a comment on all of the posts and I will draw one name. You can leave a comment each day for more chances to win! The winner will be announced whenever I decide to stop making videos and projects. :) Ha, ha, ha. I will get back to you on the specifics. But in the meantime, start by leaving a comment today. And feel free to leave any questions you may have about Gelatos too!

thanks for stopping by!

P.S. Be sure and check out Design Memory Craft’s YouTube channel. And also a couple of friends of mine on the design team, who totally rock my world with their creativity; Tiffany Johnson and Jill Foster.

Hi Kimberly!
Love the video! I have a few of the Gelatos and have attempted to play but ended up just making a mess! So, your videos will be very helpful for me! I think I counted about 10 different time you said "beautiful" lol... I read your post before watching!! Great video! Thanks again!

It,\'s very funny that I came across this tutorial today ,because I was just in Michaels yesterday saking about "gelatos" I didn't know how to use them or aything other than seeing them all over the internet. They didn't know what I was talking about at Michaels. It would be great to win them I can't wait to try these. a
Thank you for the chance at these.
