Golden Artists' Colours Silverpoint Ground 8oz
"GOLDEN Silverpoint / Drawing Ground is formulated with 100% acrylic polymer emulsion. It is a low viscosity fluid that contains high levels of titanium dioxide and prepares surfaces to readily accept marks from a metal stylus.
GOLDEN Silverpoint / Drawing Ground is designed for thin applications only. When applied too thickly the film may crack upon curing. A single thin coat is typically sufficient.
Note: Because lower weight papers are susceptible to buckling from the moisture in the Silverpoint / Drawing Ground, some artists may find taping the edges down will help prevent extensive warping.
Shake container thoroughly before use as the thin viscosity and high pigment load is prone to settling
Open jar and allow to sit for a minute or two to allow some foam to dissipate.
Pour the quantity needed to coat substrate into a wide flat dish slightly larger than the brush to be used.
With a soft brush apply Silverpoint / Drawing Ground in even strokes, working from one side to the other and keeping a wet edge
Brush back over any area where foam is evident in order to dissipate remaining bubbles.
Allow to cure 24 hours
No additional thinning is necessary and most spray equipment can be used."
This liquid acrylic is used for the preparation of surfaces and supports for drawing media, such as paper, primed canvas, wood, or any other surface that can accept a water-based coating, with heavyweight hot-press watercolor paper being the most popular choice. Designed to achieve fine detailed lines on a permanent, lightfast, flexible ground, it can be sprayed or brushed on for application.
