Using Salt

A little table salt sprinkled on damp watercolor paint
creates a delicate flower-like spot. Each crystal of salt chases away the pigment
to make a lighter area beneath it.
You can use this texture to create a field of flowers,
snow, or leaves on a tree. It also creates interest in a background or foreground
where not much else is going on.
