I thought I'd try the salt technique with watercolors again. I started with three small pieces of watercolor paper. I used table salt, kosher salt and a pink himalayan salt mill. My experiment with the table salt and kosher salt went in the recycle bin. 

I used Peerless watercolors. This color is called Forget Me Not. Now I wish I would have colored a bigger sheet.
