This panel is 8" x 8". I've been working it on it for weeks, painting circles (coal shapes), and adding a thick layer of semi-opaque gel or glazing medium. It takes more than a day for the gel layers to dry out completely. It now has at least four layers of painting and glazing, and is beginning to look like an azulejo, or even glass. It's not finished yet: it'll get a few more rounds of the above, and then maybe I'll glue a shape to it, too.
