Thanks for sharing. These are so inspirational. I have a long forgotten block from my watercolor painting days. Must get it back out.

How true Spidey, TFS your tips.

I played around last month with my watercolors & salt and created the following BG's... I saw a video on Utube( gosh can't remember by who...will look it up) and wanted to try it. They were created by moderatly spritzing watercolor paper (140lb, i think...have alot of different weights) w/ h2o, then with a wet brush picking up one color at a time gently tapping the brush to the edge of the paper which I held tilted/ slanted downward. The colors trickle down spreading into some cool,( or I think cool patterns..) once happy with the amount of color, lightly respritz and while lying flat add your salt. I used a combo of rock & good ol' table salt.

The larger BG is only 1/2 of the canvas the other half has more blues/purples & greens.. I want to use this to create a stamped underworld and hopefully frame it (if it comes out good...lol)

The scans didn't really pick up the brightness of the colors...

If you look closely at the lower left ATC it has what looks like a smileyface in a heart shape.. that was a cute surprise....

The only reason I add salt while lying flat is to re-salt my margarita glass.

Cool papers, by the way. Gotta try this when I find my H2Os again.

Thanks Spidey , thats encouraging to hear...
sometimes I wonder... I keep jumping from one media to another to another...
maybe I should just settle for mixed media's for awhile to get it out of my system...

Just keep playing with different mixes. All of your results look great. A few of them remind me of those 'crystal gardens' kits that kids can grow in a bowl.

Hhmmmmm. Lying on my back is after a few of the mega's but only if it is a top shelf & not a well drink. Must be over rocks. Hate having a diluted drink. LOL
As for the paints, I'd try either. Maybe have a basic background done & accent with twinks.
