Daniel Smith 4 oz Watercolour Ground – Mars Black
Watercolour painters used to have few options beyond white paper or a few colored boards for watercolor supports. Now you can turn almost any surface into a toned or black surface for watercolor painting, as well as collage, pastels, pencils and mixed media work. Black watercolor ground makes Daniel Smith Luminescent Watercolors pop and also provides an exciting, unexpected background for all your standard watercolor paints. Soft pastels, graphite and watercolor pencils show up beautifully on the black surface.
Apply Daniel Smith Mars Black Watercolor Ground straight from the container using a foam brush or a synthetic brush for a more textured finish. For the smoothest surface, apply very thin coats with foam brush and allow it to dry thoroughly between coats. Curing: to allow watercolor ground to attain the correct degree of absorption, let it dry and cure for at least 24 hours (depending on humidity) after the last coat.
DANIEL SMITH Watercolor Grounds provide a surface to paint with your watercolors on almost any substrate, and are mixed media friendly. All DANIEL SMITH Watercolor Grounds have excellent light-fastness, are archival and give you more creative ways and surfaces to paint with watercolors!
