Salt Art Shows Evaporation

6 10 2010

Make a unique piece of art while learning about evaporation.

Put 1/4 cup of salt and 1/4 cup of warm water into a bowl. Stir the water and salt together with a few drops a food coloring.  You can make as many colors as you like.  Use a paintbrush to paint with the salt solutions.

Leave the painting out overnight. The water will evaporate leaving the colorful salt behind.

This is my painting before all the water evaporated.
