March 01, 2013

Bored with paper? Thinking about working larger? Interested in broadening your substrate options? GOLDEN Grounds, Gels, Pastes and even some Paints are a proven catalyst for taking drawing beyond the confines of tradition and placing it on the cutting edge, expanding your creative options through larger formats, found objects and wherever else your imagination takes you.

Colored pencil, pastel, charcoal, these are just some of the common drawing materials that work great on top of many GOLDEN textures. To give artists a broad range of options for discovery, GOLDEN has developed several tools, elevating the dialog with artists around these products.

Looking for a place to start? The GOLDEN Introductory Grounds Set offers six exciting surfaces when used as grounds for drawing or painting. The dried product samples on the set packaging and informational literature included within the set give artists the opportunity to see how various drawing tools work on different surfaces, inspiring further discovery of the materials. This set can be found in the GOLDEN Acrylic aisle or the Drawing aisle of your local art supply retailer.

Other tools for artists to explore include online application videos and step-by-step instructions featuring Fine Pumice Gel, Fiber Paste, Acrylic Ground for Pastels, Crackle Paste, Coarse Molding Paste and Silverpoint / Drawing Ground. Lesson plans focused on idea generation for creating surfaces large and small to work on are also available for you to explore. Some retailers are even offering interactive in-store demonstrations, so be sure to check with your local store to see what exciting opportunities may be available to you!
