Ive been wanting to do the Art project printed on the side of the Robertsons Epsom Salts box for a while now and finally did it today!  Its very easy and lots of fun.

You will need:


  • Robertsons Epsom Salts
  • Crayons
  • Card Stock (or normal paper but it may get soggy)
  • Wide paintbrush
  • Kettle close by to boil water with

I recently started giving my home-schooled nieces and nephew Crafts classes as part of their education so I decided I’ll try this project on their Crafts workbooks’ covers.

Step 1

Draw a picture with wax crayons

Step 2

Mix equal amounts (I used a tablespoon) Epsom Salts with Boiled water and paint it over the whole canvas.


Leave it to dry. It’s difficult to photograph but when its dry the Epsom Salts will leave a wonderful sparkly crystal residue on the surface. Enjoy!
