Viewing single post of blog Grains of Salt

I thought you might be interested to see how my experiments/artwork
using Halen Mon salts are progressing.

I’ve been using the chalk (washed from the salt) as a ground on the
surface of glass sheets. I then cover with salt solution and paint, and add resin. This gives a 3D effect to the finished piece of work which I love. I also find it very pleasing conceptually because in these works I’m reuniting the chalk and salt which have been separated during the refining process.

The other technique I’ve been exploring is to place the glass sheet into
a dish of brine. Thus the chalk surface absorbs
the salt and the salt crystals are embedded within its surface.

I hope you find these outcomes interesting- I’ll post more pictures as and when the work progresses!
