How to Decorate a Frame with Salted Glue Painting



Boring frames are a dime a dozen. Learn how to decorate a frame with salted glue paint from Candace Jedrowicz and change the look and feel of a cheap decor piece. If you like to make glue crafts or unexpected paint projects, then this is the perfect painting technique for you.

Start with a plain, store-bough frame and remove the mat. Create shapes and motifs using masking tape and use that to create a pattern on the mat. Paint over the entire surface with black acrylic tape. Remove the tape and use Aleene's Quick Tacky Glue to fill in the white shapes. Next, cover the mat in salt and shake off the excess. Lightly add water colors to the salted glue (a little bit goes a long way). Spray the piece with matte sealer and, once dry, re-insert mat into frame.
