Daniel Smith Watercolour Ground

This remarkable watercolour ground lets you use watercolours in ways you never imagined!

It works on everything you can think of, from plastic and cloth to tin and stone, giving you an incredible range of new possibilities. But best of all you can rescue a flawed painting plus lift and scrub without damaging the picture's surface.

It creates a soft, absorbent watercolour surface with a slightly cottony texture that's similar to cold press paper and works beautifully with watercolour because it creates a surface that is a bit more absorbent than paper.

1 Pint of Daniel Smith Watercolor Ground will cover 107 square feet at 1mm thickness.

How to use:

Preparation

Absorbent or semi-absorbent surfaces require no special prep before brushing on DANIEL SMITH Watercolour Ground. These include paper, canvas and other fabrics, wood, plaster, shells and hardboard. Non-absorbent surfaces such as metal, plastic or glass may benefit from being lightly abraded with sandpaper or steel wool before brushing on the Watercolour Ground.

Application

We recommend using Watercolour Ground straight from the container. It has a thick, brushable consistency. Use a soft-haired synthetic brush for a smooth finish or a hog bristle brush for a more textured finish. Since the ground is transparent, one coat will cover most surfaces; very absorbent surfaces such as unfinished soft wood may require two coats, allowing the first coat to cure before adding the second. Wash brushes immediately after use.

Curing

Let Watercolour Ground dry and cure for at least 24 hours. This allows it to attain the right degree of absorption

Painting

Watercolour Ground works beautifully with watercolours and thinned acrylics. Because it creates a surface more absorbent than paper, you will want to use less water with your paint. Experiment and see what works best for you. It also works beautifully with Daniel Smith Masking Fluid.

Please note: Although this ground allows you to paint with watercolour on any surface, the results will differ from the effects achieved when using paper.
