Priming with this product transforms supports not usually used for watercolor — canvas, painting boards, wood — into suitable grounds for watercolor. This primer creates a soft and even surface that helps the smooth transition of one color into another, creating lovely effects. It is especially well suited for wet-into-wet application. The primer can be tinted with tube watercolor or acrylics. Apply at least 3 layers of primer on the surface with a brush, spatula or roller. The surface can be painted after the primer has completely dried.
