Here’s a fun and inexpensive way to add “that extra touch” to your watercolor paintings – SALT. Yep- good old fashioned iodized table salt. Above is one of my watercolor paintings which has a great example of the salt texture.
Cup of Water
Spoon (to sprinkle salt)
When the watercolor paint is still wet on the paper, sprinkle a *tiny* bit of salt on top. As the salt dries it creates a crackle-like texture. When the paper is completely dry, brush off any excess salt.
