I wouldn't use salt is using a polyester gel. It absorbs water and water does not mix well with uncured polyester resins. I have built a lot of windsurfer boards and used sugar with great results. Brush on a coat of resin, then stand back and toss sugar up and onto the surface. The further you toss it, the more even the finish will be. You will get sugar all over the place, BTW.

If you want a pattern, I have also used fiberglass cloth, and like a post above, peeled it off once the resin has partially cured. It leaves a nice cloth weave pattern.

I don't know how these would work with paint, I have used them only with resins. Always try it on a scrap beforehand.
