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)

All three can be found with “watercolor mediums” and may assist in techniques and might provoke new avenues of exploration.
