Painting With Watercolors, Glue & Salt

Painting With Watercolors, Glue & Salt
Ever since our adventure with “secret message watercolor painting” the munchkin has been enamored with his watercolors. So this week we decided to mix things up a bit by painting with watercolors, clear Elmer’s glue and salt. Isn’t the final result neat? The idea for using glue and salt with watercolors came from Pinterest. I kept seeing pins with notes about sprinkling salt on wet watercolors or using glue to create designs on top of the paint. As you can see in the photo above, the munchkin was super into this activity. We used canvases for our paintings because I had some around, but watercolor paper would work equally well. After setting everything up the process was simple and fun! So, kinda like cloud watching, the munchkin was all about seeing shapes in the blobs of glue. After adding the glue the final step was sprinkling salt around on the painting. I put the finished paintings on the counter to dry, which took a few hours. Frequently Asked Questions I have no idea! Yes. Ari Related:  loisirs creatifs blogs etc.....2

Collage Ideas and How to Make A Collage 1: If this is your first time I would use a page of card stock the same size as a piece of copy paper. Later on when you are confident you can upsize to canvas’s or whatever you like. 2: Decide what colours you want to use for a start. I usually chose 3-4 colours as the main features. 3: Gather all your materials together and wear some old clothes. 4: The sorts of materials you need are PVA white glue, water it down 1 part glue to 1/8th Part water. 5: Start by ripping the pictures out and instead of cutting them rip them all the way around so they have lovely uneven edges. 6: I start by coating my surface with acrylic paints or Lumiere Halo paints. 7: Start ripping out small pieces of decorated papers and gluing them on the card with the pva glue. 8: Glue on your pictures and cover them with glue also. 9: Add in little pieces of fabric. 10: Now start gluing down another layer over the top. 12: Add more layers building up till you are happy with it. 14: Let everything dry.

Batik On Paper + Salt Watercolors One of my recent finds on the web were batik pillowcases created with blue school gel and fabric paint. I still can't wait to try those, but while waiting for fabric paint to appear in mailbox, I thought Claire and I could try the same technique on watercolor paper. I thought the blue school gel would pull off just like rubber cement, a stinky chemical I don't like to use around kids. didn't work quite as expected. The Elmer's Blue School gel that pulls effortlessly off fabric just tears paper. 20K+ The glue reacted with the paint in such a unique way - the photo doesn't really capture how raised it is. The white starbursts seen throughout the painting are pockets of salt on the liquid watercolors. Speaking of liquid watercolors, check these out. Here are the exact products I've used. Here is EXACTLY how we did this: Grab some Elmer's Blue School Gel and "draw" all over a piece of water color paper with it. Happy Crafting!
