Large Salt Mandala

Large Salt Mandala

Today i was playing around with salt on a black surface - wanted to do something new and experiment with unknown mediums =)

This right here was my very first attempt at using salt to create art. It took me about 1h and 40 min to do this - and in just that short time i have learned a lot that i will take with me to my next - far more intricate piece that i will do with salt . I need to create better tools on distributing salt in larger and smaller quantities =) ( and find a way how to make perfect circles. 

I filmed the whole process ( time lapse ) but i will not publish it , because im not really happy with the outcome of this experiment . Lets hope the next one will look better =)

The first rule of salt or sand art. Turn your head if you have to sneeze. Great work.

Cool!  We do these here in India for festivals and stuff, except with this special kind of powder.  They're called kolams.

Quite! Are you familiar with Buddhist sand mandalas?  they use a terrific tool for metering out the sand in a fine line... salt would be just the same!…
