"Acrylic Ground for Pastels, 8 fl. oz."
Golden Acrylic Ground for Pastels is a 100% acrylic medium designed to prepare surfaces for the application of pastels, charcoal and other art media where a coarse tooth is desired. It contains finely ground sand (silica) in a pure acrylic emulsion. Acrylic Ground for Pastels can be applied to paper, canvas, wood or any primed support. This allows almost limitless applications for media typically confined to standard papers. Thinning: due to the weight of the solids in Acrylic Ground for Pastels, it does not come ready to brush-apply; thin 20-40% with water to desired consistency. Acrylic Ground for Pastels can also be used as a transparent gesso; the "toothy" quality helps media to adhere, yet allows the underlying layers to remain visible. Apply with brush, paint-roller, spray equipment, squeegee or palette knife. Use/mix only as much as is needed for a project or work session, as the solids will settle rapidly and be extremely difficult to mix back into suspension. 8 fl. oz./237 ml.
