  2. Daniel Smith Watercolour Ground - Transparent - 118ml

    Daniel Smith Watercolour Ground - Transparent - 118ml

    RRP £10.29
    SAA Price £9.26

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

    Ready to use straight from the container it has a thick consistency which is transparent and one coat will cover most surfaces.

    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. Learn More

    Daniel Smith Watercolour Ground - Pearlescent White - 118ml

    RRP £13.35
    SAA Price £12.02

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

    Daniel Smith Pearlescent White Watercolor Ground allows you to paint watercolors on any surface and gives you a beautiful, pearlescent surface to paint on!

    The ground makes a white pearlescent paintable area when applied to a white surface, and because it is semi-transparent, it allows the color and/or pattern of the surface it is applied onto to show slightly through the pearlescent sheen.

    Your transparent and semi-transparent watercolors will have a slight pearlescence effect when painted over the Pearlescent White Ground.

    You can paint over an entire surface with the ground or only in areas that you wish to add pearlescent effects, perhaps using the other DANIEL SMITH Watercolor Grounds in the other areas if you are not applying it onto watercolor paper.

    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.

    Daniel Smith Iridescent Gold Watercolor Ground allows you to paint watercolors on any surface and gives you a beautiful, iridescent gold surface to paint on!

    You can paint over an entire surface with the ground or only in areas that you wish to add iridescent gold effects, perhaps using the other DANIEL SMITH Watercolor Grounds in the other areas if you are not applying it to watercolor paper.

    As with all the Daniel Smith Watercolor Grounds, Iridescent Gold Watercolor Ground provides a surface to paint with your watercolors on most any substrate, and it is mixed media friendly.
