Welcome to dickblick
These unbelievably smooth gel sticks glide on paper like magic! They lay down color easily and blend just as easily to create new colors.
What’s more, because Faber-Castell Gel Sticks are watersoluble, they can be worked over with a paintbrush or spritzer to achieve beautiful watercolor effects. Just draw and color as you would with a pastel or crayon, then go back over your work with water to turn your piece into a watercolor painting.
A plastic twist-up holder makes Faber-Castell Gel Sticks easy and clean to use.
Assorted Colors, Set of 12
This set includes one each of White, Yellow, Peach, Orange, Light Green, Dark Green, Light Blue, Dark Blue, Tan, Brown, and Black, plus a free brush.

Just what I'd been looking for...
from up north, MI
Have seen nothing like these gel sticks. Have used watercolor: pencils, crayons, markers, pastels in my drawings but these surpass those for my needs. The richness of color and the smoothness of application make them such fun to use. Would like to see them in smaller sizes, too, and sold separately.

Oil Crayons to Watercolor
By Art Cookie
from Frisco, TX
I wanted to try this with my students to see if using a crayon type product would work for them. It is similar to using an oil pastel. Light pressure is all you need to create a watercolor, but I would rather use paint for larger coverage. This product requires 2 steps in the process. The crayons are small and encased in a plastic tube similar to a lipstick. The tip is thick and can't be used for tight detail and these won't last long under my student's use of pressure. I would recommend watercolor paint over this option.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The colored pencils and the gel sticks were sent as a gift to a soldier, and he's ecstatic with them. He's been experimenting with the gel sticks and loves using them. My husband and I have been getting gifted of your supplies by way of beautiful paintings, and now more are on the way!

Wonderful, Versatile Product
from Middle Tennessee
I use gelatos as a watercolor medium and as applied directly to my cardstock. Either way, its creamy consistency is easy to work with and colors blend well.

These are just like Gelatos in size and use. I love the way they glide over the paper. They are bold and fun. These are also easy to use with water.

These gel sticks are the best kept secret. They are exactly like the Gelatos and much cheaper. (Thank you, Frugal Crafter.) I bought the metallic set and the set of 12 and saved a lot of money. Creamy, highly pigmented, totally water soluble and so much fun to play with. I made some gorgeous ombre backgrounds on some Strathmore Mixed Media paper and had so much fun I had trouble stopping at 10 of them. I just scribbled the colors onto a non stick surface, misted the paper and used a wet wide brush for a gradient effect. The Gelato brands sell for $10 for 4 so this is a great deal.
