I’ve been hearing about gelatos for awhile now. No, not the ice cream concoction, the smooth and creamy pigment color that comes in a tube like chapstick. It can be thinned with water or used right from the tube and spread with your fingers or a sponge.
My friend Sylvia, who is in my local real world art group, was playing with hers at our last get-together, and being the sucker for new art supplies that I am, I knew I’d be needing to get some. Then, lo and behold, with a 50% off coupon from Michael’s burning a hole in my pocket, I found a beginner’s kit and indulged. Indulging is so much more pleasant when a 50% off coupon is involved, doncha think?
There aren’t enough colors in my new little kit. In fact, only one from my favorite palette. I spent some time roaming around the internet to see what colors are available, and where I might find them, but looks like finding them isn’t all that easy. And here I was set to hit the bricks tomorrow in search of them.
I had a plan for what I was going to do, but since the colors aren’t right, I’m not sure now. But that what playing with new toys is all about, huh? Figuring it out?
