Abstract. On Fiber Paste Base

Jennifer Bates

This is another project I’m not sure if I will be adding additional layers. It is the first time I have used one or two of these products.

First, I took a sheet protector or 2 and spread a layer of tar gel(sometimes called string gel), then added drops of color here and there and then proceeded to drag a non sharp pointed object through the paint/gel until I was happy with my design.

The instructor put her dried get over light modeling paste I think. However I put mine over fiber paste. So, obviously I had to wait for both my base of fiber paste on the illustration board and the tar gel on the page protector to dry.

The next step is kind of tricky and I have a ways to go to get this down. It is kind of like working w/ Saran Wrap. Only thing is once you start peeling your tar gel design off the page protector if it sticks to itself you are a lot less likely to separate it.

So, once you manage to get your tar gel peeled off the page protector you have to decide how you want to put it on your base.

The tar gel can be pulled apart, but your will be more successful of it not sticking if you use scissors.

Once I had my abstract pieces in place I pressed it to the base an then covered the whole thing with matte medium gloss.

Now I am deciding what I want to do next.

***I just rewatched the class again and you can make these gel skins out of any acrylic medium.***
