Welcome to the Texture Effects Page!

I’m uber curious about how household items interact with water media, so I went about testing out stuff to see what kind of textures I could create.

We post the results here.

I’m still actively investigating texture effects – especially with spraying… stay tuned!

Salt






My favourite is to use the Safety rock salt for de-icing driveways and sidewalks.

But I’ve had good success with regular table salt, kosher and sea salt.

The most important part is putting it on at the right time: not puddly wet, not dry.

This is SO my favourite texture.
