On NGS group, we're doing a study of Darlene Olivia McElroy & Sandra Duran Wilson's book "Surface Treatment workshop" This week we're looking at the section "Salt". I've down salt resist before with dye inks on glossy card stock to good effect. In the book, the authors discuss using acrylic or watercolor paints on canvas, panel or watercolor paper. I did not have much success with this.
Painted watercolor paper with watered down acrylic paint and will it was still wet, sprinkled coarse salt over the surface and waited for paint to dry.
I see some of the resist effect.
One more layer, painted over with watered down red acrylic paint and poured on lots of coarse salt and let it dry.
The authors warn not to wait more than 1 - 2 hours before brushing off the salt or it may adhere permanently. I only let it dry for 1/2 hour and found the salt difficult to remove.
I like how this looks.
Then coated with a watered down Lumiere metallic bronze paint, sprinkle with coarse salt and let it dry.
Some resist, but not as much as I thought. Think I should have watered down the Lumiere paint some more.
I could only find coarse rock sea salt and it did not work very well.
It is not easy to guess how long as I was watching for it to do something and then it stuck. I will try again another day. Thanks for sharing.
