Alpha science classroom: Salt Paintings Activity steps
1.Squeeze some glue onto a sheet of watercolor paper and smooth it with a paintbrush and then keep it dry overnight.
2.Paint over the dried glue with watercolor paints. Sprinkle some salt on sections of the painting when it is still wet. Once it dries, you will find how the salt absorbs the surrounding water and pushes the pigment away, leaving behind a white, speckled effect.
3.When the paint dries, use a cloth or dry sponge to gently remove the salt. Pay attention to all the great textures created.
4.Using a circle punch to cut out as many circles as possible. One inch punch was used but any size will work.
Finally, children can use hole punches or scissors to make salt paintings of different shapes, and they can be used to decorate Christmas trees and windows. It must be beautiful. You can also use salt painting to make postcards as a gift to your best friends, who must love them.
