Salt Art

Did salt art with Jazz some time ago. It's simple and fun! Other than preparing the colours for her on the palette, she did the rest herself.

Materials:
  • White glue
  • Paper
  • Dropper/syringe
  • Salt
  • Spoon
  • Poster colour
  • Tray (To hold the paper for mess free art)
  • Water
Put the paper on tray to prevent salt mess from the little fingers. Use a deeper tray if possible, we sure know how horrible things are when salt spills. At least it is not sugar.

1. Squeeze the white glue on the paper in random directions, anywhere
2. After which, sprinkle salt on the glue before it dries up
3. Used the syringe to coat on the colours she wants 
I left her artwork to dry for a day and got an awesome crystallized result. After drying, salt that doesn't stick well would fall off. I then laminated it to hold the salt in place, and so that I can put Jazz's craft onto her wall.
4. The final laminated artwork

It was a simple and quick art to complete, less the drying time.
