Salted Silhouettes

By 3rd grader, Ethan W.
Our silhouette project is very cool because you get white paper and you do something called the wet on wet technique. To do the wet on wet technique you wet a paintbrush and paint the paper with no color just water. And then you watercolor paint the paper like the sunset. When it dries you either color it with special black marker or you cut out black paper into the shape you want and glue it. That’s how you make a silhouette.

In art we did a project called silhouettes. It will take two days to finish the project. You will have to use watercolor paint, salt and black paper. When you put the salt on the paper it looks so cool because it absorbs the paint! My favorite part was when I put the salt on the paper because it was really cool! I did a snowboard because my dad owns a ski and snowboard shop. My favorite subject in school is art because you can learn a lot of artistic things in art, I learned how to make a cool silhouette!
