What was Gordon using??

I just caught the tail end of a segment of the show and Gordon was using some kind of mixture and painting it onto photos. Breathing on the stuff made it turn clear, and looked like glass. What is this stuff and where can one find it? Looked amazing. Hope someone knows!

I saw the show back in December and thought it would be a nice idea. I went to their website and copied and pasted the materials needed for this craft (posted below). But now that I am ready to make it, I have no idea how! The instructions are so vague! Any help would be much appreciated!!!

Original photography blown up at a copy store, mounted on a wood frame and coated in resin makes a dramatic alternative to the black and white standard.

• Oil paints and urethane (colour wash on photos) — art supply store

I watched it twice that day just to find out what Gordon was using but still couldn't get a clear idea of it. I'm not very crafty but would love to attempt this project. If someone has step-by-step instructions PLEEEASE reply.
