Watercolour Salt Background Technique Using Acrylic Blocks

I just loved this technique when I watched this video, and decided to do it for myself.

Supplies Needed: 
  • Clear acrylic block (any size)
  • Spritzer with water
  • Watercolour paper
  • 3 different ink colours (one dark, one medium and one lighter)
  • something to cover your table
  • gloves are optional.
  • coarse sea salt, sugar etc.

These are the ones I created using left over pieces of watercolour paper.  You can see the coarse sea salt on top of each piece.

These 2 pieces have the salt removed and have left an interesting pattern.  Colours used on the block:  Island Indigo, Lost Lagoon, Old Olive.

Here I use one of the backgrounds using the new SAB stamp set "For Being You".  Using an Aquapainter and Island Indigo Ink, I applied some extra ink inside each letter and then applied some glitter.  The background paper is Irresistibly Yours (SAB) inked with Pool Party and Old Olive inks.
