If you are looking for a simple art activity to do with the kids, this Dripping Salt Painting is perfect. We had some unexpected results with this dripping salt painting which I think turned out pretty cool. Judge for yourself. When you are done be sure to check out our Drip Watercolor Painting and this Bubbling Glitter Paint which is just as fun.
Dripping Salt Painting
Supplies you will need:
- Paper (white or black)
- Water mixed with food coloring (we made 4 colors)
- Droppers or pipettes
In the finished products below, you can see how the texture of the salt really comes through and leaves a trail even in the places where they had not glued. I am excited to try this again with liquid watercolors.
