Dyed and Salted Paper by arteesvida

This paper is very, very easy to make! Use high rag count watercolor paper, mix dye with water (because you don’t want the dye to dry quickly) and glom it all over the paper. Throw salt over the whole thing and let it dry in your garage overnight. Next morning, wipe off the salt. Bemoan the fact that the freezer you left the paper drying on is also now blue.

I used this piece as the background for a round robin collage project that is now hanging over my bed!
