    "The Pine Tar Incident"

    I used a palette knife, a paintbrush, and a boatload of pine tar for this one. 24" x 36". Completed July, 2013. Now, if anyone has any ideas of how I can actually display this one, I'm all ears, lol!

    If it is dry, I would try a frame that has a space between the picture and the glass. Sort of like a shadowbox.

    Thanks for the suggestion. That's the problem....the pine tar isn't going to dry (completely). I had to apply it very thick in places, and if it stands upright over a length of time, I believe it will run. This piece has been 2 years in the making, and with the 30th anniversary of the Pine Tar game approaching, I went ahead and finished. Over the past couple of years, I have experimented with putting Modge Podge over the tar, spraying it, etc. So far....nada. This may be a piece that I end up having photos for memories while the original is in a landfill.

    A clear resin will probably be your only other option...that might actually look cool too. Even a low temp kiln would probably be too warm for the tar to keep its shape for very long.

    Maybe try this on a junk piece. Try a heat gun to see if it will dry out or if it melts and makes a big mess.

    I thought of that too. Put under the glass. Just wasn't sure if it would eventually level it's self out over time. If it can be dried then it might last.

    Some good thoughts. In all I've seen so far with the pine tar, it pretty much holds its form without leveling out at all for a couple of weeks. After that, it kind of thins a bit and the sharp edges made into it start to blur. If nothing else, I'll get a professional photographer out here to get some good shots that I can use down the road for prints.

    I would give it a year lying flat and see if there is a "solvent" like substance in pine tar that will evaporate away -- even in the thickest areas - given a long amount of time.

    I know that defeats the purpose of having it ready for sale or display for the 30th anniv of the game but that may get the artwork to have some value that you can cash in on eventually or be able to display in your collection if you are keeping it.

    If it blurs, can't you "redo" the lines?

    The pine tar may never dry completely, especially since you applied it so thick.
    I have a couple of game-used bats from the '80s that are still sticky, and there's hardly any pine tar on them.
    I'd imagine your thickly applied pine tar piece will remain sticky for decades as well.
