50’s Diner Gelatos! These 50’s Diner Gelato colored sticks by Faber-Castell are a delicious blend of vibrant pigments. Gelatos Colors are creamy sticks infused with brilliant color.

Each set has 4 coordinating and blendable colors including: Red orange (Blood Orange), teal (Aqua Dolce), gray (Squid Ink) and yellow (banana). This set also includes a stipple brush, and dot dabber. Gelatos Colors are acid-free and odorless.
