Gelatos are a very unique and interesting medium. If you like to explore color and texture, this is a fun option. You can use it wet, like a watercolor paint. You can use it dry, like a crayon. You can blend it like an oil pastel, or you can almost sculpt it like a texture paste. I am not an expert on this at all but I do enjoy using this to add some dimension to my entries by using it with a stencil. I recommend using it with a makeup sponge type applicator if you are not using it with a paint brush, because it can be a little chunky. If you blend it onto your page then it won’t try and attach itself to your opposite page when you close your bible.
