Golden Pastel Ground 236ml

Pastel Ground, a product offered by GOLDEN, is an acrylic preparation specifically designed for pastel artists working on canvas and other supports. It provides a toothy surface that emulates the texture of papers typically used with pastels and chalk.

When applied to a surface, Pastel Ground creates a textured surface that allows pastels to adhere well. The toothy texture provides the necessary grip for the pastel pigments, allowing for better layering, blending, and control in pastel artwork.

For artists who prefer an even rougher texture, Fine or Coarse Pumice Gel can be added to the Pastel Ground. This enhances the surface texture, providing additional toothiness for the pastels to grip onto. The choice between Fine or Coarse Pumice Gel allows artists to achieve the desired level of roughness and texture in their artwork.

Another advantage of Pastel Ground is its compatibility with acrylic colors. It can be tinted with acrylic colors, allowing artists to create colored grounds that harmonize with their pastel palette. This offers further creative possibilities for incorporating color and tonal variations into pastel artwork.

By using Pastel Ground, pastel artists can work on canvas and other supports while still enjoying the toothy texture typically associated with pastel papers. The addition of Fine or Coarse Pumice Gel allows for even rougher surfaces, if desired, while tinting the ground with acrylic colors adds an extra dimension to the artwork.

In summary, Pastel Ground is an acrylic preparation specifically designed for pastel artists. It creates a toothy surface similar to pastel papers, providing the necessary grip for pastel pigments. The addition of Fine or Coarse Pumice Gel can further enhance the texture. Pastel Ground can also be tinted with acrylic colors, offering additional creative possibilities. With Pastel Ground, artists can enjoy the benefits of pastels on canvas and other supports while maintaining the desired surface texture for their pastel artwork.
