4. Sprinkle salt on the paint for a speckled look, and lemon juice for the blotchy look. Let dry and brush off any excess salt.

    I used a thick black Sharpie marker for the outline. Makes for a bolder look than crayon.

    I used Strathmore watercolor paper and Dick Blick liquid watercolor paint. You just can’t get that vibrant color with drawing paper and tray paints.
