A Girl with Hearts in Her Hair


Hello there! Mou here today with a tutorial for painting a girl with Gelatos® and Texture Luxe.

Whether you are painting a realistic portrait or a fantasy one like mine, there are shades of Gelatos® that can help you achieve a wide variety of skin tones. I used three main Gelatos® colors for mine: Buttercream, Coconut and Guava

Did you know that Gelatos® are now also available as open stock? That means you can buy only the colors that you use the most!

Here are the supplies I used for today's project:
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos®: Buttercream, Bubblegum, CherryCoconut, Cotton Candy, Iced Chai, Iced Pear, Guava, Licorice, Margarita Mix, Metallic Mint
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Square Journal Boards
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Deluxe Waterbrush
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Textural Accents: Texture Luxe™ Gold and Pearl
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos Tool set

Now, let me show you my steps.


Start out by sketching a face.


Color the background with blue and green Gelatos®.


Color the face and hair next.


Create shadows and highlights and add details.


Apply some Texture Luxe Gold with palette knife.


Apply Texture Luxe Pearl through stencil.


While the Texture Luxe Pearl is still wet, stamp into it. Let dry.

Add a butterfly wing and your project is done!

Hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and have fun with Texture Luxe TM that now comes in gorgeous shades of Gold, Silver, Pearl and brand new Copper!
