This is an easy and fun way to add a little variety to everyday painting with watercolors. Your kids can create a cool, textured painting using plain ol' table salt.
Shaker of table salt
Cover your work area or set the paper on top of rimmed cookie sheets to catch stray salt.
To start, paint a picture or design on paper with watercolors. While the painting is still wet, shake salt onto the design. Let dry.
The salt will create a cool bumpy texture to the painting.
