Did you find the heavy gel did ok - staying level and solid? that is, while it was drying?

 

I've been wondering about using it for other projects but wondered if it would for instance drip too much out, or just not stay in place well enough

Yeah, it's made to go on canvas paintings so it needs to stay put on near vertical surfaces.  I expected a small amount of contraction, which it did; especially under a lamp.  Mixed with a faster drying acrylic paint, the drying time decreases a little as well.  If I can find time later tonight or tomorrow, I will post a new pic of the globe.  The blue green areas are much darker now since the heavy gel has cleared up more.
