Pastel Primers and Grounds


Pastel primers and pastel grounds are used to prepare drawing and painting surfaces prior to applying pastels, charcoal, graphite, chalk, or other dry media. These unique substances create a toothy, rough surface on papers, boards, canvas, and other substrates for the purpose of grabbing and holding onto dry media as it is applied. This is particularly useful when layering art materials. Some grounds can be blended with paints or mediums to create colored grounds or to increase tooth on a surface.
