 1. Sharpen the watercolor pencils over the A4 sheet of printer paper, scattering the different colored pencil shavings all over the paper.
2. Spray the shavings with the water spray bottle and then immediately add salt over the wet shavings. The salt will help the different colors to blend together.

 3. Dry the paper with the hairdryer and gently rub off the salt and shavings. The paper will now have a slight textured appearance.
