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.

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! The ground makes a luminous gold 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 iridescent gold sheen. For deepest gold, apply 2 to 3 thin coats of the Iridescent Gold Watercolor Ground. Your transparent and semi-transparent watercolors will add a glaze of color when painted over the Iridescent Gold Ground modifying their color. 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.

 

DANIEL SMITH Iridescent Gold Watercolor Ground

Apply the Watercolor Grounds 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, allow to dry thoroughly between coats. Curing: to allow watercolor ground to attain the correct degree of absorption, let watercolor ground dry and cure for at least 24 hours (depending on humidity) after the last coat. As with all the DANIEL SMITH Watercolor Grounds, our Pearlescent White and Iridescent Gold Watercolor Grounds provide a surface to paint with your watercolors on most any substrate; metal, glass, wood, plastic, fabric, rocks, concrete and of course cardstock and heavy paper.  The Watercolor Grounds can also be used to add special effects in specific areas of the painting surface and is perfect for mixed media. Both the DANIEL SMITH Pearlescent White and Iridescent Gold Watercolor Grounds have excellent lightfastness, are archival, and give you more creative ways and surfaces to paint with watercolors!
