Painting with Watercolors, Glue and Salt. Kids will love being creative and making designs with the glue. The salt creates a pretty starburst effect by soaking up paint pigments as the painting dries. And as an extra bonus: the salt sparkles!
raised salt painting: create design with glue, cover glue with table salt. Touch watercolor brush on salt, without smearing and watch color be absorbed by salt. Let dry. This looks fantastic. So, inverted rock salt painting.
We need to rethink popsicle sticks as an awesome art material--the possibilities! Painted popsicle sticks :-) I think using them on mixed media paintings or on a surface pattern design are ways I'll explore.
