New Watercolour Painting Technique - Using Salt!

Hiya, I've been trying a new technique for my watercolour paintings which is fun and creates a beautiful effect.  It requires some patience, but if you sprinkle salt into wet watercolour paint and then let the paint completely dry, you will see that the salt has absorbed much of the colour, creating wonderful patterns.

Here are my experiments:

What do you think? Aren't the patterns just gorgeous?! What are your own favourite watercolour techniques?
