Paint on Salt
Try SaltCraft, the art of painting on salt paper. Peel off the backing from a piece of clear contact paper. With sticky side up, cover thoroughly with Morton® Salt. Gently shake off excess salt. Let stand at least 48 hours.
With salty side up, place salt paper over a coloring book picture or a piece of plain paper. Use a paintbrush and watercolors to paint on the surface of the salt paper. Use light strokes when painting, rather than rubbing hard. Let dry, then remove the paper from under your design.
To give design a softer look, spray with a fine mist of water. Glue design to background paper of your choice, with either textured or smooth side up.
Sculpt with Klaymates
Kids and parents alike have fun making Morton Klaymates—rainy day salt sculpture friends. In a medium saucepan, mix 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup Morton® Salt, 2 teaspoons cream of tartar, 1 cup water, and a few drops of food coloring (optional). Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until mixture is very thick and lumpy as it cooks. Cool slightly and then knead in 1 or 2 drops of vegetable oil. Store in a plastic bag. For more brilliant shades, use paste food colors (available where cake decorating supplies are sold).
NOTE: SALT SCULPTURE IS ART, NOT FOOD. IT IS NOT EDIBLE.
