Experimenting With Salt

Today I thought I would start working on some pieces using salt to create interesting backgrounds. I did this years ago when I was in school and it was quite effecting, creating like a batik or tie-dye effect.
 The watercolour papers were painted with a mixed of watercolour, acrylics and acrylic inks.
They were then sprinkled with table salt.
Because the sun was out, I decided to let the paintings dry outside on the wash line. Once they are dry, I'll scrap off the salt and see what the effect is. 
Bye for now.
