GOLDEN Pastel Ground is a 100% acrylic medium designed to prepare surfaces for the application of pastels, charcoal and other art media where a coarse tooth is desired. It contains finely ground sand (silica) in a pure acrylic emulsion.
Pastel Ground can be applied to paper, canvas, wood or any primed support. This allows almost limitless applications for media typically confined to standard papers.
Pastel Ground can be used as a transparent gesso. Both can be applied directly to substrates. The "toothy" quality helps media to adhere, yet allows the underlying layers to remain visible.
Note: it dry with a whitish translucency, and multiple applications respectively increase visibility. Test all applications prior to use.
Pastel Ground can be blended with GOLDEN Acrylic Paints to achieve colored grounds. However, add minimal amounts of color since all additions of paint to Ground will decrease the tooth.
