I was in Daniel Smith (art store) the
other day and came across their new product.
Daniel Smith Watercolor Grounds.
The girl said put it on just about
anything, wait 24 hours and then
paint your watercolor.
Then spray your watercolor with
Golden's Archival Varnish (gloss),
two coats letting it dry between coats.
Then spray with one coat of
Golden's Archival Varnish (matte). This
will preserve your watercolor forever. No
MMMM I said, I must try this.....mmmm?!
So I did. The weather has been NOT summer like
so into the studio and a little ,experimenting, a little
humor and a little patriotic goodness....
on mini canvases(reminds me of waiting for the
ladies room at a Mariners game. The big dog (beige)
looks desperate, don't you think!?!)
I love this product. These were
watercolor, pen and ink on canvas.
I also am making a journal cover
which is on paper covered board.
I'll post results when finished.
