Awesome, I love the effects. What brand of colors are you using? I was trying to get similar effects but my colors won't give me any effects when using salts on them. It worked before just fine but I don't remember what I was using back then, now the colors don't react to salt at all. Would be cool if you could let me know.

Thank you :)

Windsor & Newton, add the salt when the watercolour is almost dry. When it's very wet it dissolves the salt, when you can see it drying seems to work best for me. Hope it works for you!

Thanks for the quick reply and the tip. I'll try that out. And if that doesn't work I'll give Windsor & Newton a go.
