Getting Textures From Salt Water

This is a great tip from Judy Szabo on The Silk Painting Gallery Network

Try dissolving lots of salt in warm water and paint on already dyed silk wet or dry. The effects are amazing depending how much salt you use. Also if you paint the silk first with this substance, let it dry and paint on it you will get the most beautiful crystalized patterns. I have tried it with painting small flowers, it was lovely, unfortunetly I have no photos.

Himalayan Salt is Huge!

Since we have been talking about salt on SPIN page of facebook….I wanted to share something one of the students on the Online Silk Painting Class .  Edith Jessica Cole tried Himalayan Salt wow this is huge and I have never seen anything like this. I am always amazed and learning. Love the sharing. I have not tried this salt myself yet but thought you might enjoy seeing it.
