Just kidding, but I do have a serious question for anyone that has actually seen the Le Brea tar pit in California. I have recently purchased Paleocrafts tar pit model. Man is it a beauty. What I was wanting to know is the tar very high gloss or is it more of a semi gloss. I figured with it being an oil base substance it would have a glossy sheen to it and not appear dull. But since I have never seen it before I really don't know. Thanks.
