Painting techniques day 16

Plastic Wrap and salt

I have used this technique only with paper in the past so this was a real experiment.

I covered it with plastic wrap.

This technique is nothing new but must be included none the less. This is a piece of heavily misted cloth with brown and black paint. I sprinkled salt on it and let it dry.

 The salt particles attracted the paint leaving small dots.

This is something I usually do for a first layer when making some art cloth.


  1. Very nice, the technique with the plastic wrap. I used it on paper too, but will surely try it out on fabric one day. And the salt gives always nice results.Thank you for sharing!

  2. Love the results. thanks for sharing. what is old and tried and true is new for some!

  3. I like the results. I have used salt on silk but not used the plastic wrap with fabric before. What fabric are you using?
