Mediums & Grounds
The concept of QoR does not end with colors. Like everything that comes from GOLDEN, equipping artists to realize their creative vision inspires new materials. QoR Mediums extend and enhance artists' range and control of watercolors, by improving subtractive capabilities with Lift Aid™, extending colors with Watercolor Medium, or unleashing the flow of colors with Synthetic Ox Gall.
QoR Grounds introduce a new wave of expression to watercolors. Watercolor Ground quickly transforms nearly any surface into an absorbant bright white paintable surface similar to hot-press papers, while Cold Press Ground and Light Dimensional Ground transform surfaces with texture ranging from toothy cold-press style surfaces to lustrous modeled surfaces that you design. Finally, to preserve paper or grounds from color, Masking Fluid is a removable barrier that helps create hard edge effects.
QoR Mediums and Grounds
Using QoR Masking Fluid with Watercolor
Using QoR Additives
QoR Cold Press Ground
Cold Press Ground creates an absorbent, cool white surface with the appearance of rough handmade paper. A smoother finish can also be achieved by skimming with a wet palette knife during application. Ideal when a rough texture is desired for emphasizing dry brush techniques. (Item #7002020-5)
QoR Light Dimensional Ground
A white, lightweight paste that spreads like frosting, Light Dimensional Ground can be applied smooth and thinly, or built up to create ridges, peaks and other interesting textures. The extremely absorbent surface of Light Dimensional Ground allows washes to spread quickly, while accommodating fine lines and detail as well. Dropping color into lightly wet areas creates beautiful blooms. (Item #7002010-5)
QoR Watercolor Ground
A fluid acrylic primer that creates a porous surface similar to hot press paper on many different materials, including canvas and panel, Watercolor Ground dries to an absorbent, lightfast and flexible surface that withstands repeated lifting and scrubbing. Suitable for a full range of watercolor techniques, including wash and staining effects, it can be used to return stained areas to an absorbent white surface. (Item #7002000-5)
