Let your imagination soar!
For too long, the beautiful medium of watercolour has been confined to a paper-behind-glass niche. Now, with this exciting new ground, anything you've dreamed of painting with watercolour can become a reality. It's easy to use just brush it on and incredibly versatile. Here are a few tips for getting the best results.
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 should be lightly abraded with sandpaper or steel wool before brushing on the Watercolour Ground.
It is recommended 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 pigmented with Titanium White pigment, 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.
