Salt Art (Kid Friendly Friday)

Kid Friendly Friday is a new carnival at I Blame My Mother and has started with a Salt Art craft project. Here's my suggestion for another Salt Art idea:

Paint some paper with watercolour paint. To get the best effect it should be quite wet and the paper covered. While the paint is still wet sprinkle salt on it. Wait until the paint is completely dry and then gently rub the salt off. The salt absorbs the paint and the effect left on the paper is amazing. You can experiment with different amounts of paint and water in the watercolour and different amounts of salt, which will alter the result.

I don't have any pictures as it's years since I did this but here's a picture of some coloured salt I kept all that time.

  1. I cannot wait to try this. My little ones love to watercolor. This adds excitment to the finished product! Thanks for participating!
