WHAT IS OIL GROUND?
Oil Ground is the foundation of an oil painting. It is very important for artists who are building permanent pieces to carefully consider the quality of every layer of their paintings. They should be as concerned about the layers that they do not see (size and ground) as they are the layers they do see (oil layers, painting mediums, and varnishes).
Just as a basement made from poor quality concrete will bring a house down; an inferior ground will cause the painting—no matter how beautiful—to fall apart!
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF OIL GROUND?
Gamblin Oil Painting Ground makes a strong, bright, non-absorbent foundation for oil paintings. Oil Ground is formulated from alkyd resin, titanium dioxide (for opacity) and calcium carbonate (for strong adhesion). Oil Ground brings out the best of whatever it touches. It's subtle, yet unmistakable texture enhances your oil paints and mediums and locks in the vibrancy and intensity of your colors.
