The Jean Haines’ All That Shimmers Set Watercolors are beautiful on white watercolor paper as she paints with them by themselves, mixed with other colors, applied as glazes, and when used on a black surface they take on a whole new dimension!

On a black surface like the Watercolor Ground, these colors have a glowing luster that is nearly magical!
Not only do the DANIEL SMITH Luminescent (Shimmering) Watercolors look great on a black surface, the Mars Black Watercolor Ground allows you to paint with watercolors on nearly any surface. Not just flat paper, but 3-dimensional surfaces too!
You can paint the Watercolor Grounds (6 colors including Mars Black) on nearly any surface, wood, ceramic, metal, papers and boards, glass, plastic, fabric, and stone! You are no longer confined to flat watercolor paper, you can create your art onto objects like metal flower pots, plaster masks and wooden animals.
Now that you have a couple of examples, what are you inspired to create?
