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.
Apply the 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, allow to dry thoroughly between coats. Curing: to allow the watercolor ground to attain the correct degree of absorption, let the 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 Iridescent Gold Watercolor Ground provides a surface to paint with your watercolors on most any substrate, and it is mixed media friendly. The DANIEL SMITH Iridescent Gold Watercolor Ground has an excellent lightfastness, is archival and gives you more creative ways and surfaces to paint with watercolors!
