Slap some Medium on It

That's what I did. I'm trying for an encaustic-y look. This is where I started.

Here's after a thick layer of gel. This is still wet, mind you. It'll clear up.

Well, I've been back to the studio since starting this post and this is what it looks like after one coat.

OH NO! I used the wrong gel. Goes to show you I should have referred to this post. I was hoping for the effect I reached on this piece. Oh well. I will go on and finish the above piece and embrace the accident.

Long story short, to avoid the opaque, don't use Golden Extra Heavy Gel/Molding Paste, use Golden Extra Heavy Gel (Matte).
