What you’ll need:
Plenty of Salt
Black or Dark blue construction paper
Water color paint and brushes
Cookie sheet with edge
How To Create It:
Start by layingÂ your paper on a cookie sheet so the salt doesnâ€™t get all over the place.
Draw out your design with the glue. It works better if you do it thick. If you arenâ€™t comfortable free handing a design, draw it out with a white crayon or colored pencil first.
Next, sprinkle salt over the glue before it dries. Apply generously! You want to get everything covered. Shake off excess salt onto your tray.
Get your watercolors really wet, and lightly paint onto the salt. You can use food coloring and an eye dropper here if youâ€™d prefer. You donâ€™t want to drag it too much or it will mess up the salt. I tried to get my brush extra drippy so I barely had to tap the design. Have fun with colors! It looks great when they bleed together.
Let project dry completely and you are done!Â Your kids will love how the salt sparkles when its all dry.
