I added a tar gel design to a piece of heavy watercolor paper. See my notes on Rainbow Gravity for some tips on handling tar gel. Let the tar gel dry completely before continuing.
I used a small foam roller to cover it with black gesso mixed with a bit of Phthalo turquoise. Again, allow it to dry. I brushed on white gesso diluted with water and added a piece of plastic wrap over top while it was still wet. Using a heat gun as I went, I peeled the plastic off slowly.
Add more black ink lines, adjust the colors as needed, and paint the tar lines with gesso and primary cyan.
