Creates an absorbent surface that allows for soft edges and flowing wet-in-wet techniques. May be brush applied for a linen-like texture, rolled on for a dappled effect, or scraped on smoothly with a palette knife. May also be lightly wet sanded for a smoothness similar to a hot pressed surface. May be applied to many different materials, including canvas and panel. Watercolor Ground dries to a lightfast, flexible surface that withstands repeated lifting and scrubbing. See our video about this product. (Item #7002000-5)
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. Use on a wide variety of surfaces, including board, canvas, wood, panel, and paper. May be wet sanded. 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 wetted areas creates beautiful blooms. See our video about this product. (Item #7002010-5)
Cold Press Ground
Dries to a unique rough surface and looks like handmade paper with all its beautiful imperfections. Great nooks and crannies to catch the watercolor, and will allow for interesting lifting effects that you can't get with traditional paper surfaces. Apply with a palette knife by spreading it over a surface (board/panel/paper/canvas). Applied with a dry palette knife, the texture will be similar to rough handmade paper. Use a bit of water on your palette knife and run over the wet application to eliminate some of the roughness for a surface more like cold press paper. See our video about this product.

More detailed information about QoR Grounds can be found here.
A latex-based masking fluid to complement QoR watercolors and mediums. Masking Fluid is ideal for creating hard-edges and highlights within watercolor compositions. The key to success when using masking fluid is making certain everything is thoroughly dry before each application or removal. (Do not apply heat to accelerate drying!) Also, because this product can be very difficult to remove from brushes after it dries, we recommend dedicating a brush or tool for use with this product, do not use with fine watercolor brushes.
