Watercolor, Glue and Salt

Craft time!
This week we attempted to try out a pinterest idea involving watercolors, glue and salt. Sadly our experiment didn't turn out (not even close) and I suspect I didn't use the proper materials
our kids love doing crafts and they feel very important when they use special grown up materials like real canvas ($2 from the dollar store) and proper art brushes, so it was still worthwhile
Its difficult to tell from the photos but the art is slightly textured thanks to the salt and glue.
We began by using watercolors on canvas
Clearly this was serious business
Once the canvas was covered Alex went to town adding clear glue
Next a sprinkling of salt
Let it dry and instant art!
