I did not realize it's been so long since I posted. I've been wrestling with a Trojan horse virus and finally was able to rid my computer of the pesky threat. Why can't these people find something positive to do with their skills? Aarrgh!!!! This is clear tar gel dribbled over painted paper. It's one of the techniques from our fat book swap. Thank you Nancy Lynn. I like the way the tar gel picks up the colors underneath it and changes as the colors change. It's a little difficult to see here. She also suggests dribbling the tar gel over white paper and then painting over it after it dries. The tar gel will stay clear.
