Double Scoop anyone?

What would you do if you got Gelatos® in double the size? I'd use them on bigger projects I thought. Here's an 18" x 24" canvas created with Double Scoop Gelatos®, some Gesso, Gel Medium, and Glaze.

Let me show you some step photos I took while creating this canvas.

I attached some tissue paper to the canvas using Gel Medium. When dry, I applied a wash of Gesso to mute the tissue patterns a bit and to prime the surface for painting. I did a quick sketch of a bottle with a stem of flower. I used Gelatos® to create layers and layers of colors, blending each layer with Glaze till it looked close enough to what I had envisioned. I used Gel Medium to add pieces of diecuts to the bottle to make it look a bit like a vase. I also typed up my thoughts, printed them, cut them in strips and added them next to the vase. I added water to some parts after coloring with Gelatos®  and held the canvas up to let the colors drip down. Here's a closer look.

I think you'll love playing with these longer-lasting-double-the-delight Gelatos® twice as much! 
Thanks for stopping by :)
