For this project we have to thank Ms. Olsen, Ben and Jonah's art teacher at Walker School. Ben showed us this technique after making a beautiful sea life pictures at school. The watercolor paintings had a really unusual texture to them (perfect for paintings of the ocean). The paint almost looked bubbly.
Ben said all they did was sprinkle some fancy salt (kosher salt) on the watercolor paint while it was wet.
What you need:
- watercolor paint
- kosher salt - table salt works too, it just makes a finer texture
- we also used some colored salt (just salt mixed with food coloring that we had used for another project) it added flecks of color to the paint
