I took a bit of time to play with the string gel. Cephalopod Dream, 8 x 10, acrylic and string gel on mat board. The background, a blend of black acrylic and string gel, was done with a sponge.

  1. The string gel just looks so cool. Very shiny! Especially against the asphaulty background.

  2. I just read up on string gel – I’ve been messing about with gel mediums (media) for a bit, but that’s a new one. It looks like fun. I think a trip to the local art supply store is in my future…

  3. Yep, it’s fun to play with. I bought it on a whim, and it’s been very interesting to use. For classic use, it should be around an 80/20 to 80/10 mix, 80% string gel to paint. For finer control, up the amount of paint, take it around 60/40.

  4. Very nice, Caine. The colors complement each other quite well, and it involves cephalopods. ♥
