Salt paintings – this is how we homeschool.

Painting with salt and water colors
I’m blogging with minimal words this February. I’d love to see snippets of your life in photos too, please leave me a link in the comments.

  • Amber - Michael-Lyn,
    I took pieces of heavyweight watercolor paper and brushed on Modge-Podge. Then I poured salt over the top (I had some random salt: ice cream salt, kosher salt, Japanese salt. I just ran them all through the food processor) and shook off whatever didn’t stick. After they dried I shook them off some more. Tuesday used liquid water colors (these: http://www.discountschoolsupply.com/Product/ProductDetail.aspx?product=16821&rv=True) to paint them. Salt is also fun to throw on after a painting, try it and see what happens!
