Salt effects in watercolour

Salt can be used very effectively  to give the effect of falling snow. It’s fun to do and the best results can always be turned into Christmas cards. Also it’s really good practice for working wet into wet.

Apply a watercolour wash

With a thicker mix paint the tree wet into wet

Sprinkle a little salt while still wet and allow to dry

Try different colour combinations

Great disasters....

with a little imagination can sometimes be turned into something glorious!
