Daniel Smith Watercolour Grounds

Description

Why should watercolour painting be limited to paper? Daniel Smith Watercolour Grounds enables you to use watercolours on canvas, other fabrics, wood, plaster, and hardboard, and even metal, plastic, and glass. Just brush it on and let it dry to create an ideal, absorbent surface on virtually any material.

Manufactured by Daniel Smith to the highest standards, this ground has a thick, brushable consistency. Apply it with a soft brush for a smooth finish or a bristle brush for a bit more texture. One coat usually provides sufficient coverage, but extremely soft materials such as unfinished wood may require two coats of Daniel Smith Watercolour Grounds. Non-absorbent materials (metal, plastic, etc.) should be lightly abraded with sandpaper or steel wool before application.

Because it creates a surface more absorbent than paper, you will want to use less water with your paint than normal. Experiment and see what works best for you. If not framed behind glass, we strongly recommend sealing your finished work with an archival spray varnish.

    Daniel Smith Watercolor Ground

    Found it very easy to lift and blend on - better than a lot of papers. Not quite as easy as paper to draw on with pencil though and not so easy to erase pencil marks. The texture depends on how you apply it and if you sand it after it has dried. I used three layers over an existing watercolour that I didn't want. I lightly sanded the ground and it gave me a very interesting texture like fine siltstone. I will definitely be using it again!
