Art Project: Salt & Watercolors

saltandwatercolor

Sarah enjoyed working on this little project. It is probably one of the easiest, yet messiest, art projects we have done.

Materials needed: 
White school glue
Table Salt 
Watercolors
Paintbrush 

salt watercolor glue Collage

1. On a piece of construction paper draw a picture with white school glue.
2. Cover glue with salt. Allow to sit for a few minutes. 
3. Be sure entire picture is covered with salt. Pour excess salt into trashcan. Or on the floor as Sarah and I chose to do. This is the messy part. We had salt everywhere.
4. Use a paintbrush to drop watercolor onto the salt and watch it spreads as the salt absorbs the paint.
