CAS Watercolour August Challenge

Welcome to a new challenge!
Check out the Top Picks from July's Butterfly challenge HERE.

This month we're adding salt to our wet watercolour pieces.
You can use any kind of salt. In fact using more than one kind is really fun as they react differently.
Puzzled? Check out the informative videos below.
