Welcome to dickblick
Now there's more to love with Gelatos Double Scoops!
Twice the size of Faber-Castell's original Gelatos Colors, Gelatos Double Scoops have twice as much creamy, luscious pigment in every stick. The colors glide easily onto paper, canvas, wood, flocked papers, and embellishments. They can be used dry, or dissolved with water to create watercolor effects.
Stamping with Gelatos Double Scoops is easy, too. Just apply color to a stamp and apply the stamp to your surface, or apply a field of color and use a stamp to remove it!
Available in 18 vibrant colors, Gelatos Double Scoops are perfect for larger projects. Their twist-up design keeps hands clean.

Comments about Faber-Castell Gelatos Double Scoops:
The great thing about Gelatos is that they are very smooth and blendable. They move more easily then oil pastels. Add a touch of water to your finger as you blend and color becomes more brilliant. BUT, beware that these are water soluble. They dissolve and disappear with too much water. This also means that they don't hold up under coats of paint. You can only use them for the top finishing layer. And in that case, they add a nice sheen and color effect.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Wish all the colors came in the double scoop size
By glass mltr
As a mixed media artist, I'm continually finding more uses for these. I'm a long time fan of Caran d'Ache II which are great for using during travel. The Gelatos can be used in the same way but some have a metallic bonus, which can also be found in some of the Caran d'Ache II. I've not tried the ones that are the regular size but those would be less to carry if traveling. These can be used dry & then water added later with a brush, spray or whatever. I'm sure there are lots more uses....don't be afraid to experiment.

So smooth, it just glides on your item, and they are fun to paint with. I use them with my craft mat and add paint to that, mix a little water in if you want and you are good to go. You can mix new colors to your hearts desire. A wonderful product you can even paint with your fingers or a brush.Have fun.
