Daniel Smith Watercolor Ground creates a soft, absorbent watercolor surface with a slightly cottony texture that's similar to cold press paper. With this breakthrough archival-quality ground, artists can use watercolors in ways they never imagined. Create new work on any surface, rescue flawed paintings, lift and scrub without damaging the painting surface and frame without glass. Turn almost anything into a watercolor painting surface: wood, canvas, masonite, all types of paper, fabric, glass and Plexiglas, metal, plastic, stone and masonry. There's really no end to what can be done! It has a thick, brushable consistency; a soft-haired synthetic brush will give you a smooth finish and a hog bristle brush yields a more textured finish. Since the ground is pigmented with Titanium White pigment, one coat will cover most surfaces. Because it creates a surface that is a bit more absorbent than paper, you might want to use less water with your paint. Experiment and see what works best for you. 16 oz jar. Made by hand in the USA. Archival and acid free.
