Choice of Salt

Salt is a cheap and beautiful animation medium. There is a variety of types of salt one can use. The main thing that differentiates types of salt is the grains’ size (or coarseness).

Salt grains

Kosher salt, for example, has chunky grains (seen on the right). I used an ordinary table salt made by Kalas because it was composed very fine grains (seen on left). 

Because salt is translucent, youll have to colour it. © Philippe Vaucher 2013
