Salt Resist Technique- Checking the Details

Salt resist on silk

Here’s my salt resist recipe :

One cup Table Salt

Five Cups Boiling Water

I let the salt dissolve, took the pan off the heat, and submerged the painting.  after a few minutes I removed the painting.  Once it had drip dried a bit (and cooled), I hung it to finish drying.

The next day, when it was completely dry, I could see the salt crystals on the fabric.  The photo shows how saturated the painting will be with the resist, with this salt recipe.  So now I am ready to use my stencils and spray bottles with my dye.
