Default Distress Crayons

I just watched the webisode and I kept on thinking they didn't seem any different from Gelatos. Does anyone have them? I'm pretty sure I can do everything they showed with stuff I already own and will pass on them. What do y'all think?

I was thinking the same thing Penny. I'm passing for now also. I'm off to get my driver's license renewed - ugh, I hope the line is short (ha ha ha). even in my small town there is always a line, mostly because they are only open 2 days a week.

I notice they did not use the word Gelatos --Yes Pen....sure looks like the same product to me ! just a slimmer version though, and maybe easier to use in smaller areas. I do like that they would match my distress inks... I think I would buy eventually if can get a good deal

I just got them but haven't had a chance to try them out yet. But I got them because of wanting the colors to match. One of these days I'll get to play with them and will let you know, but I did just use one quickly to see and the texture if much like gelatos...mostly though I just like TH products, they always work well!

I was thinking the same things as Penny as I watched the video and since I just spent money on Gelatos I think I will pass on this product. But...I do like the idea of them matching the inks.

I am wondering if they are a little firmer than gelatos? I have the crayons Stampin Up carried several years ago, and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them. My favorite coloring agent because of all the same techniques Gail,showed today. Like Sam, I think having colors that match my inks might be helpful.

I find gelatos very waxy, only have a few that I bought for try-me and didn't care for. They kept using water (love mediums that take water) - but agree with most of you: have stuff to create similar looks and colors weren't even a wow.
also, have learned the hard way, that most mediums you can rub with your finger w/out time constraint, you/anyone can rub on down the road - ie, not good for sb pages. Might be w/ water it will set (like the pearl powders).

Good point Lee. I was wondering if anyone knows if there's a fixative that I could apply to my paper crafts that would keep products that smudge from doing exactly that...smudging.

I use clear acrylic sealer - matte finish, mostly for chalks - comes in an aerosol spray, very strong smell (do outdoors, spray from at least a foot away - nice even misting).

I use acrylic sealer spray as well - same precautions Lee mentioned. Actually, I have DH do it, even if I do it outside it sets the asthma off it can be that strong. In a pinch, aerosol hairspray can work too. I have a can of Aquanet around somewhere.

Linda, I have the SU crayons too and really enjoy using them too. I just got a set of the "kids" gelatos and I'm going to be interested in comparing the two products. I very rarely use the crayons on the paper unless it is a large area, I generally lift color from the stick with a wet paintbrush to color.
