Make-It Monday : Salt Painting

It's Tuesday but we are going to begin it with our Make-It Monday! Today we are doing a resist and salt painting activity which is great for all ages. First gather thee simple materials:
  • Cover stock
  • Oil pastels or crayons
  • Salt
  • Watercolor set with soft brush
  • Soft sponge
  • Water
Now follow me through these easy steps! 

First draw on the paper with crayon or oil pastel.Leave some areas blank.

Add water to the paper with the sponge to make it damp.

Choose a color and paint over the damp areas with the brush. The color will spread on the damp paper!

Keep adding colors and spreading them across the paper. Add more water if necessary.

When you are finished with the watercolor take a pinch or two of the salt and sprinkle over the whole painting or just in a few spots. Let dry completely and rub off the salt! Post photos of your work here or at our Facebook page.
