OBJECTIVE: Create a toothy level ground for use with dry media.
– GOLDEN Pastel Ground (8 oz.)
– GOLDEN Color Pouring Medium MATTE (8 oz.)
TOOLS / MATERIALS:
– Rigid painting surface
– Container with lid for mixing and storing (16 oz.)
STEP – BY – STEP:
STEP 1: Start with a surface prepared for pouring. For more information, follow the link to our technical information sheet at goldenpaints.com/technicalinfo/technicalinfo_colorpouring
For fresh acrylic preparations, allow at least 3 days for materials to cure before pouring.
STEP 2: Mix all of the 8 oz. PASTEL GROUND and the 8 oz. COLOR POURING MEDIUM MATTE in the 16 oz. container. (1:1 ratio) Stir until combined. Tint with acrylic color if desired.
STEP 3: Pour the mixture into the center of the panel and gently rock, allowing gravity to move the paint around the surface. Add more as needed, rocking and spreading the material until it flows over the edge to get a thin layer.
STEP 4: Let dry in a level, dust-free environment. A drying tent can slow down drying time, protect the surface while wet, and deter imperfections in the dried film.
STEP 5: When dry, you should have a warm, toothy ground free of tool marks. Wait 3 days for the material to cure before continuing with the drawing or painting.
