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.
