I think any crafter or artist would find good use for these colorful pigment tubes. Their consistency is similar to lipstick or chapstick, they glide on substrates nicely, and they can be layered with other products (especially the Faber Castell big brush markers). The brightness of the color was a real draw for me. They don't feel particularly greasy once on the page, but I do spray workable fixative over them to insure the color stays put when I start layering other media.
The photo I've included was one I added to my review of the Bright set which has 12 colors. (That's my favorite set!) Although the house was created with the Brights, it provides an idea of what Gelatos can look like when you work to knock down the colors a bit and want a more subdued look. It's easy to make something brilliantly bold - or to get the washed out look that's so popular. That's one of the things I adore about these creamy sticks of magic - you decide the effect you get by the method you use. There are quite a few YouTube videos that can give you some ideas and I encourage you to check them out if this is a supply you are interested in, but haven't worked with before (or don't know what to do with). I included a few of my favorite tips in my review of the Brights - and always struggle with whether to point people to another review or just repeat the information in my current review. In this case, I'll leave those tips under that other review, but I will say that these work equally well on light or dark surfaces. You choose whether the effect is opaque, full coverage, slick, solid, and appears to lay on the surface of your substrate - or - the color appears to be a part of your substrate, like it's integrated into the paper weave.
Whether you are new to arts and crafts, or you've been around long enough to see all sorts of products come and go, you will easily find a use for these. Did I mention they are also acid-free? Portable? Wonderful to mix or overlay? Oh, yeah! The effects you can create are truly endless, especially when you begin to bring water into the equation. Easy to control, deposits rich color on paper, wood, canvas, etc you're using (the house is on a birch wood panel), countless ways to apply...ooh! Gives me goosebumps just thinking about all fun crammed into this box of velvety sticks!
Gelatos are available in a wide range of combinations - a couple of colors are available in sets of 2, there are many different color combinations available in four packs (each comes with a brush), sets of 15 that have a theme (Pastel, Metallics, Brights, etc), a collection of 23 Double Scoops (Double Scoops are about twice the size of these regular sticks), and a few additional gift sets. You can get a good idea of their awesomeness in the 4 packs - they are more than enough to play with (quantity-wise), but fairly priced at around $10. Try 'em...I think you'll like 'em!
