The type of salt you want is rock salt which is available from most supermarkets. You'll need to crush it down a bit depending on the size of the original crystals but you're after a variety of sizes ranging from powder to larger chunks.

As the video shows, the rest is pretty simple. Make sure you've got a convincing base paint coat as this is what will shine through. Wet the surface & sprinkle on the salt.

Then build up thin layers of topcoat over the salt. When done, just remove the salt by rubbing with a toothbrush. This lets the base coat appear where the salt once was.

You can repeat the process over & over again with different successive topcoats.

So watch our video for more details on how this technique actually works.
