The Gelatos Mix & Match range from Faber Castell are water-soluble crayons that can achieve an interesting array of effects for craft and art projects. With a creamy texture, they transfer to a surface - be that paper, card, canvas, wood or textile - with ease and can be blended either dry or with a wet brush.
Other techniques that can be used are 'dripping' where the Gelatos are applied along one edge of a surface, sprayed with water and then allowed to run or drip down the surface when it is tilted, 'stamping' by wetting a rubber stamp or lino cut, applying the gelatos colour and then pressing onto a paper or fabric surface and 'spraying' when a small portion of a gelatos stick is dissolved in water and sprayed onto a surface.
The Gelatos paint sticks are contained in small, lidded plastic containers with a twist motion to push the crayon up as required. The sticks are approximately 80mm long with a diameter of 15mm.
