While I was having fun using salt with watercolors,
I wanted to try a technique I saw in this video.
I loved the results.
Let's see what you think.
Imagine this without the stems and outlines that I drew.
I used about 1/4 cup of water and a couple pinches of salt to add a wash to
my watercolor paper.
Then I dropped some watercolor onto the wet paper.
I didn't get quite the "explosion" that Teela got, but enough so it looked like flowers to me.
(I did blot the edges of the color bursts with a paper towel.)
I added stems with a paint brush and some more watercolor and
some definition to the flowers with a Copic Multiliner Pen.
Since the piece was too large for a CAS card,
I cut it in half and made a twofer.
The black dots on the second card were done by dipping a toothpick
in Black Nuvo drops.
Challenge is open until the 24th.
Lots more videos with salt techniques over there.
I hope you'll play along.
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
