Daniel Smith Watercolour Ground Transparent 118ml

SKU: DSWCGT118

Finally watercolourists are not bound to only using paper as their only painting surface for too long, the beautiful medium of watercolor has been confined to a paper-behind-glass niche. Now, with this exciting new ground, anything you've dreamed of painting with watercolor can become a reality. It’s easy to use—just brush it on—& its incredibly versatile. Here are a few tips for getting the best results.

  • Preparation
    Absorbent or semi-absorbent surfaces require no special prep before brushing on DANIEL SMITH Watercolor Ground. These include paper, canvas & other fabrics, wood, plaster, shells & hardboard. Non-absorbent surfaces such as metal, plastic or glass should be lightly abraded with sandpaper or steel wool before brushing on the Watercolor Ground.
  • Application
    We recommend using Watercolor 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.
  • Curing
    Let Watercolor Ground dry & cure for at least 24 hours. This allows it to attain the right degree of absorption.
  • Painting
    DANIEL SMITH Watercolor Ground works beautifully with watercolors & thinned acrylics. Because it creates a surface more absorbent than paper, you will want to use less water with your paint. Experiment & see what works best for you. It also works beautifully with DANIEL SMITH Masking Fluid.
  • Finishing
    As with all watercolors, your work on DANIEL SMITH Watercolor Ground will need to be fixed if it will not be framed behind glass. GOLDEN Archival Aerosol MSA Varnish with UVLS is an excellent spray varnish that will protect your work on any surface. Use it at room temperature in a well-ventilated area.
