Watercolour and Rock Salt





4X4 Watercolour Technique with Rock salt....
I used 140LB weight watercolour paper for this Technique,also using wet in wet technique,by soaking the paper with water first, then while holding the paper upright drop in the colour from the top,then gradually turn the paper so you get a nice feathering look,while still wet shake on some rock salt and leave to dry.Lovely effect,can also be used for landscape paintings to aquire the look you would like on building walls etc,like a weathering effect.(different colours of course lol)
The jigsaw puzzle pieces are done with W/colour pencils scribbled on and wiped over with a baby wipe and stamped........ just experimenting today lol
