The Ground Washes Away

An interior shot today, of a sink in the Art College (more properly, the School of Art & Design) in Belfast, with an ineffectual sign overhead which reads: Please keep this sink clean. Wash away any surplus ground and do not pour away turpentine or paint thinners. A ground is “a stable, absorbent surface to which the paint can permanently adhere. All grounds are composed of gypsum (chalk) and adhesive” (via this source).
