The queen of the Gelatos Fan Club is here to leave another review for these fascinating, versatile pigments. This box contains fifteen different, amazingly shimmering colors...including Silver Ice, Gold Champagne, Iced Coffee, Metallic Mint, Metallic Grape, Metallic Icing, Iced Rose, Iced Pear, Iced Chai, Metallic Melon, Metallic Blueberry, and Iced Currant. Just like with the other sets, I find it impossible to choose one favorite. I have several I use more often - some, MUCH more often - but I wouldn't want to give up any of these precious metallics. Design Memory Craft just keeps outdoing themselves with these amazing magical sticks!

The consistency is like a velvety lipstick - you control whether they saturate the substrate, leaving a slick, smooth, powerfully colorful surface...or more of a light hint that produces a washed out/faded look...or anything in between! It doesn't take much to create a piece that really rocks - especially when water is added. Using the included paintbrush with some water will allow you to move these yummy creams around your project with incredible ease. Adding a little water will just turn these into succulent watercolors - adding more water will allow you to achieve the

The review for these Bright Gelatos could be summed up in one word: PERFECTION.

Since it's impossible for me to leave a review that short (seriously - I might even call myself grandiloquent...no, I wouldn't - I'd call myself a big mouth lol), I have to tell you why I find them to be totally superb. Let's talk about the color - delicious bright shades of tropical colors. These are the colors I would surround myself with in my world. I love how vivid and luscious they are.

Consistency: Like a velvety lipstick, they lay down color on every surface I've tried with splendid results. It doesn't take much to create a piece that really sings - especially when water is added. Using the included paintbrush with some water will allow you to move these yummy creams around your project with incredible ease. Adding a little water will just turn these into succulent watercolors - adding more water will allow you to achieve the

I really love the Metallic Gelatos. I use them for Bible Journaling and haven't ever had a problem with them leaking through to the other page.

A couple of the colors don't go on looking as bold as I expected, but overall I'm happy with the set. The lime color and the light blue (next to the lime in the product image) works very well.

I love the fact that I can blend them with a brush and water, but also a baby wipe works really well and goes much faster. I've never been a fan of watercolors, but these are AMAZING.

BEWARE THESE ARE MADE IN CHINA!!
They are not the REAL Faber Castel made in the USA!
The colors are off and not as highly pigmented!
I wish I knew this before I had given it a great rating through Amazon. I would recommend buying the real ones even though they are a bit more expensive.
Unless you are not trying to match the real set of gelatos you have already-and you don't care about the color not being vibrant enough or if they are for kids starting out, then maybe start with these.
