The concept of Qor Watercolors does not end with colors. Like every product that comes from GOLDEN, the idea of equipping artists to realize their creative vision inspires our products. QoR Mediums help extend and enhance the creative range and control of watercolors, whether the objective is modulating colors through lifting with Lift Aid™, extending colors to their most distant point with Watercolor Medium, or unleashing the flow of colors with Synthetic Ox Gal.
Watercolor Medium (59 ml) is a general purpose medium used to increase the transparency and flow of watercolors. When Watercolor Medium is used in larger amounts it also increases the gloss and saturation of colors.(Item #7001500-2)
Lift Aid™ (118 ml) is a fluid medium for water color surfaces to improve the lifting of watercolors. Lift Aid may be applied to paper before painting or between washes. (Item # 7001550-4)
Synthetic Ox Gall (59 ml) is wetting agent that improves the flow of watercolors, 2-5 drops added to water makes paints easier to apply and blend when creating washes. Wetting paper with a water and Synthetic Ox Gal mixture assists in creating clean, uniform washes and improves wetting on hard sized papers. (Item #7001000-2)
QoR Grounds bring a totally new wave of expression to watercolors. Watercolor Ground quickly transforms nearly any surface into an absorbant bright white painting surface similar to hot-press papers, while Cold Press Ground and Light Dimensional Ground transform surfaces with texture ranging from toothy cold-press style surfaces to lusterous modeled surfaces that you design
Watercolour Ground is a fluid acrylic primer that creates a porous surface similar to hot press paper on many different materials, including canvas and panel, Watercolor Ground dries to an absorbent, lightfast and flexible surface that withstands repeated lifting and scrubbing. Suitable for a full range of watercolor techniques, including wash and staining effects, it can be used to return stained areas to an absorbent white surface. See our video about this product.

Light Dimensional Ground is a white, lightweight paste that spreads like frosting, it can be applied smooth and thinly, or built up to create ridges, peaks and other interesting textures. The extremely absorbent surface of Light Dimensional Ground allows washes to spread quickly, while accommodating fine lines and detail as well. Dropping color into lightly wetted areas creates beautiful blooms. See our video about this product. (Item #7002010-5)
Cold Press Ground creates an absorbent, cool white surface with the appearance of rough handmade paper. A smoother finish can also be achieved by skimming with a wet palette knife during application. Ideal when a rough texture is desired for emphasizing dry brush techniques. See our video about this product
