Watercolor Grounds – Daniel Smith


Let your imagination soar with DANIEL SMITH Watercolor Grounds!

For too long, the beautiful medium of watercolour has been confined to a paper-behind-glass niche. Now, with this exciting new ground, anything you’ve dreamed of painting on with watercolour can become a reality. DANIEL SMITH Watercolor Ground creates a soft, absorbent watercolour surface with a slightly cottony texture that’s similar to cold press paper. With this breakthrough archival-quality ground, artists can create new work on any surface, rescue flawed paintings, lift and scrub without damaging the painting surface, and frame their work without glass. There’s no end to what can be done!

With DANIEL SMITH Watercolor Ground you can:

Turn nearly every surface, wood, metal, ceramic, plastic, glass, board and more, into one ready for painting with watercolours! Rescue a watercolour painting, Titanium White Watercolor Ground acts as a “white-out” for artists, allowing you to cover up with the Ground and start over in an area with fresh white. You can paint with watercolours on coloured Watercolor Grounds; Buff Titanium, Mars Black, Iridescent Gold, and Pearlescent White.

Transparent Watercolor Ground allows the surface of your substrate, for example, wood grain or decorative paper, to show through when you paint over with watercolours.

The DANIEL SMITH Watercolor Grounds are available in 6 different colours:

  • Iridescent Gold
  • Pearlescent White
  • Transparent
  • Titanium White
  • Buff Titanium
  • Mars Black
