Project #4


Watercolor & Salt






In this project, we take advantage of the fact that salt eats up water creating a cool effect!







Supplies needed:

-Paintbrush

-Watercolor paint

-Water

-Paper (watercolor/textured paper preferably)

-Paper towel

-Salt



The salt is applied in areas that you’d like to create a spotted effect (for stars, sand etc.) Remember that it should be wet when the salt is applied so that the salt can soak up the water. Once the painting is dry gently take off the salt revealing the spotted effect. Enjoy ❤️
