QoR Watercolor Grounds

Like QoR Modern Watercolors, these grounds combine the best of tradition with the latest technical advances, resulting in remarkable quality and performance.

QoR Cold Pressed Ground — Applying this ground to a variety of substrates creates a surface that has the appearance of rough handmade paper. It's especially ideal for dry brush techniques. A smoother finish can also be achieved by skimming the surface with a wet palette knife during application.

QoR Watercolor Ground — This fluid acrylic primer creates a porous surface similar to hot press paper on many different materials, including canvas and panel. It dries to an absorbent, lightfast, and flexible surface that withstands repeated lifting and scrubbing. Suitable for a full range of watercolor techniques, including washing and staining, it can also be used to return stained areas to an absorbent white surface.

QoR Light Dimensional Ground — When applied to virtually any substrate, this lightweight white paste creates a super-absorbent, sponge-like surface. It can be laid down in a smooth, thin layer, or built up to create ridges, peaks, and other interesting textures. The resulting surface allows washes to spread quickly, while accommodating fine lines and details as well. Dropping color into lightly wetted areas creates beautiful blooms.
