Salty Lashes

Marsha Elliott

Covington, Ohio, United States

Artist's Description

This is my fifth attempt at using “Eyelash” yarn and salt to produce a very interesting texture that would work great for backgrounds in certain paintings. VIEW LARGER for best results.
Process…
Arrange yarn on watercolor paper, wet the paper and yarn (I used a spray bottle), drop in color, add more water if necessary to keep everything wet, then sprinkle with salt…as much or little as you like. Allow to dry thoroughly before removing yarn and salt. Have fun experimenting!
Winsor Newton paint on Arches 140# coldpress, eyelash yarn, salt….also slight amount of white acrylic spatter from toothbrush.
