You will need:

  • Salt
  • Colored chalk
  • A glass or clear plastic jar
  • White, liquid glue
  • Plastic plates


Pour some salt onto your plate. Choose which color chalk you want to use. Rub the chalk over the salt, until the salt becomes colored. The more you rub the chalk over the salt, the brighter the color will be.

Set the plate aside, and repeat with another color.

Once you have all your colors, pour the salt into the jar in layers. If you want to create sloping layers, tip the jar to the side slightly while pouring.

Once your salt art is complete, pour a layer of white glue over the top and set aside to the dry. The glue with hold the salt in place so the layers don’t get mixed.
