I like using Faber-Castell Gelatos because they are so easy to use and quite versatile too, but they aren’t the best at layering, well, they are if you want blended layers. But if you want distinct layers then I would not usually reach for Gelatos. If you find the same than I have a technique for you in this week’s video that will overcome this issue and let you add as many Gelato layers without you want and without blending the layers all together.
So watch the video if you want to see how I do it and also to see the six different techniques I use to apply my Gelatos in just this one little mixed media canvas. You might also recognise the flower? As promised it is the digital download image that I colored with pencils in last week’s video and if you want to see that video you can find it over on my YouTube channel with lots of tips on How to Color With Prismacolor Pencils. And the image is over in my Etsy shop ready for you to download and color along with three other flowers, this image is the Anemone flower digital stamp.
