Golden Clear Tar Gel is a colorless gel with extremely resinous, syrupy, stringy, and tar-like consistency. Clear Tar Gel can be used to generate fine detailed lines by "dripping" it over painting surfaces. It can be blended with acrylic paints or mediums, offering a full range of colors with which to work. The texture of the medium being similar to the consistency of honey allows for better leveling and less brush-strokes.
Drying time: Dependant on thickness of application
Qualities: 100% acrylic polymer
Clean up: Soap and water
To create thin lines dip a palette knife or other tool into the gel and paint mixtures then move it quickly over a surface. The line thickness can be controlled by the size of the tool and the speed with which it is moved.
In thicker layers and pours, fine lines can develop in the surface during drying. To avoid this, keep fluid applications less than 1/8” in thickness and completely level throughout the drying process.
When mixing this medium allow bubbles to rise to the surface. Generally, mixtures with Clear Tar Gel should sit for at least 24 hours to become bubble-free.
Do not mix with oils. Paint on any non-oily surface. Abrade non-absorbent surfaces for increased adhesion. Avoid freezing. Minimum film formation temperature is 48 °F/9 °C.
To thin, add water or acrylic mediums.
Note: Larger additions of acrylic paints and mediums will increasingly lower the stringy nature of Clear Tar Gel.
