Materials List

  • Simple coloring page printed on white thick cardstock (recommended)
  • Watercolor paint palette
  • Water
  • Paintbrush
  • White glue
  • Salt


  1. Trace around the image on the coloring page with glue.

  2. Sprinkle glue with salt as you would with glitter. Tap the paper to settle the salt into any grooves. Gently lift the paper and shake to remove the excess salt.

  3. Dip the paintbrush in water and blend with watercolor to soften. Saturate the paintbrush with watercolor. Then, gently touch the paintbrush to the salt. The color will spread.

  4. Allow the picture to dry completely before displaying or gifting.
