I used a technique I found in Nancy Reyner's book Acrylic Innovation. This is not the smoothest application, but I hope I will improve. The technique involves a mixture of 1:5 paint with soft gel gloss, in a squeeze bottle. I am really curious how it will look when it is dry. It will probably be somewhat transparent, because gel dries clear. It will probably also be darker in tone, and the dots and lines will shrink somewhat.
