Watercolor with Additives

I tried a couple of tricks you can only do with watercolors, and it came out pretty cool. The texture is from throwing salt on the wet watercolor, and the resist is from putting rubber cement on one layer of watercolor, letting it dry, putting on a contrasting color, and rubbing off the cement. 
It was hard to control. Rubber cement is invisible on paper, and since there are hours of drying time in between each step, I didn't have a chance to learn whether something was successful when I did it.
These two are sloppy, but I think I should keep trying.
