Watercolour and Salt Nebula Paintings

We have done watercolour and salt paintings many times over the years, it is such a fun craft to do.  When I arrived at work the other week, I found that they had spent the weekend making a solar system out of paper plates.  As a way of continuing with the space theme into the week BB and I made some watercolour and salt nebula paintings.

Make sure you follow my painting board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own watercolour and salt nebula paintings you will need:

  • Liquid watercolours
  • Salt
  • Watercolour paper
  • White crayons
  • Paintbrushes

Start by using your white crayon to draw some stars onto your watercolour paper.

Next paint over the top with your liquid watercolours.  We stuck with using pinks, purples, blues, and orange.

Finally sprinkle some salt on the top.  It is quite fun to watch the salt absorb the liquid and leave crystal like patterns behind.

BB didn’t seem too keen when we started, but once he got into it, there was no stopping him.
