Oil on water

This is the first bit of painting in a while, well the background at least! I tried out a technique of putting down some strokes of Vegetable oil on painted card and then adding some layers of watered down acrylic, the results were the background of this drawing, just wiping it back now and again I was able to keep adding texture.
I'd like to try it on a bigger scale to see if it works, but just need to work a way of not using my cooking oil.
