MORE TAR GEL TECHNIQUES!

Last week's  post promised an example of this technique
on good, smooth watercolor paper.
ON ABSORBENT PAPER, TAR GEL DRIES CLEAR AND RESISTS TRANSPARENT PAINT.
Again, let your tar gel design (lines, shapes) dry before painting!

I do love me some analogous colors!
The specimen above was done with liquid acrylic inks.

ART TIP: Always wet the brush before beginning to paint with acrylics.
Lightly blot the water out and use. The paint flows better that way!

VARIATION: Mix tar gel with transparent fluid acrylic to create colored lines and shapes.
mixed-media
ANOTHER ART TIP: Always cover your work surface with old newspapers or other protection!
