Salted Glue Photo Frame

By:

If you're bored with the same old painting craft projects, then you'll love this Salted Glue Photo Frame tutorial from Candace Jedrowicz. Using table salt, watercolors and acrylic paints, you can create a unique piece that looks unlike anything else!

Materials:

  • Aleene's Quick Dry Tacky Glue
  • Dimensional frame with mat- any size
  • Table salt
  • Watercolors – Tammy recommends liquid watercolors
  • Paint brush
  • Masking tape
  • Black acrylic paint
  • Cosmetic sponge
  • Scissors

Instructions:

  1. Choose a dimensional frame for this project, that includes a mat, or use an old mat. Remove the mat from the frame.

  2. I like whimsical shapes, but you can do the masking any way you please. Cut your shapes from masking tape and place on the mat. It helps if the shapes are large enough to secure the mat to your surface.Paint over the whole make with the cosmetic sponge, making sure to dab the sponge before each paint application. A wet mat will warp.Remove the tape gently while it’s still wet.

  3. Fill in the white spots with glue – a few at a time.

  4. Cover the glue wet glue completely. Shake off excess salt.

  5. Dip the paint brush in color and very lightly touch the salt. The color will grab and spread.Allow to dry. Tap off any loose glue.
     
  6. Spray a couple coats of matte sealer.
