  3. Watched the barn owl.
    QUESTION: I tried salt into wet paint a while ago. Let it sit overnite for drying. Found that there were wet puddles where salt was. What’s up?? Thanks. Have a great vacation.


    • if you use a lot of salt it can trap the water underneath, I think you probably used too much, try again with less:)
