Painting with Salt and Watercolors

This was a really simple painting project that came out with a cool effect. It probably would’ve looked even better if they’d covered their papers with more paint.

First, I wet the papers a little. Then, they painted over it with their watercolors. (The only problem was that their brushes were a little small so it wasn’t covering much space at one time.) Then, we sprinkled some salt over top.

Love Bug’s is on the top:


We let them dry and then brushed off the excess salt.
