what do you think about getting effect and texture by adding to the wet paint addictive such as salt, alchol, marsilia soap or using wrapped plastic, fabrics or other?
I sometimes do, but I'd like your opinions and moreover, discover new creative tecniques to produce texture.

I enjoy trying all sorts of things on my wet watercolors. I encourage the students to do the same with things they find in their kitchen cupboards... ( salt, etc). One thing you need to be mindful of, is any substance that you intend to let stay on the finished work, needs to be acid free. That is not a common practice in watercolors anyway - becomes collage http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif Carol
