Salt Snow Paint
An Activity for School-age Children:
Find and use interesting natural items to paint a picture!

Before You Begin:
Gather materials needed: Colorations® Liquid Watercolor Paint, watercolor paper, paint brushes and salt.

Activity Goals:
Adding salt to watercolors creates beautiful paintings with intriguing texture! To use color mixing and texture while creating holiday artwork.

Because this activity involves paint and salt, you may want to use activity trays to avoid paint or salt spilling onto the floor.

Lightly dampen the watercolor paper.
Use watercolor paint to create an outdoor winter scene, covering the entire paper.
While the paint is still wet, sprinkle salt onto the painting and let dry.
Once the paint has dried, gently brush off the salt. The salt will cause some of the paint to come off, creating the desired snowy effect.
