This unique product allows users to paint with watercolors on nearly anything. Daniel Smith Watercolor Ground creates a soft, absorbent surface similar to cold press watercolor paper when brushed onto wood, plaster, canvas, masonite, paper, fabric, glass, metal, plastic, or stone.
This material is compatible with both watercolors and thinned acrylics. Because it creates a surface more absorbent than paper, you will want to use less water with your paint. Can also be used as a “white out” for watercolor paintings, allowing users to cover up small areas and re-paint over them.
Non-absorbent surfaces (metal, plastic or glass) should be lightly sanded, cleaned, and dried before applying Watercolor Ground. Use foam brushes for a smoother finish, or bristle brushes for a textured finish. Let dry for at least 24 hours. Most surfaces only require one coat. Archival grade and acid-free.
