A friend gave me a set of gelatos for my birthday in April, and I have been experimenting with them. At first I was not too enamored with them, but my tune is changing. The more I play with them, the more I love them! They are water soluble, so they need to be sealed for permanence, which was a minor annoyance in the beginning. But…..they are absolutely perfect for adding hints of color here and there in a piece!
