Salt Painting with Liquid Watercolor
How we did it:
- liquid watercolors - canvas
- cookie sheet (or tray)
- pipette (or paint brush)
Gather your materials. Protect your workspace with newspaper or paper bags.
Use a bottle of glue to draw a design on the canvas.
Put the canvas on a rimmed cookie sheet. Pour salt onto the glue. Shake off the excess salt.
Let the glue dry for about 20 minutes. (To speed up the process, you can set a blow-dryer to “warm” and blow-dry the design outside.) The glue doesn’t have to be completely dry before starting the next step.
Dip a pipette (or paintbrush) into liquid watercolor and gently apply it to the salt. (You’ll have more control with a paintbrush, but more fun with a pipette!) Like magic, the color will climb up the crystals!
