Wow. Look at all of you out there!In the last week, the audience of my wee neglected blog has doubled! I suppose this means I have to start posting more than once in a month.
To Do This:
mix liquid soap and water in a bowl. Mix until bubbly. Add paint, dye, or whatever coloring agent you favor. Drink mix, maybe?
Put a piece of spare paper behind the bowl, as a splashguard. Trust me.
Grab the paper you want to bubble-paint.
Grab a straw. Put it in the soap mix; blow bubbles. Really go to town!
Lay your painting paper gently, directly, flat side down, on the bubbles. The bubbles may pop, they may melt, they may even cluster on the paper and let you push them around with a brush! The randomness is what makes it fun!
Do Not Do This:
Let the cats in right after adding the paint.
Start bubbling the paint before the cats have settled in and gone into furniture mode.
Inhale in shock when the cats decide to use human feet as their Safe Base in Cat-Tag, noted by swiping with a paw.
Inhale about 50 quarts of soap mix and paint.
Spend fifteen minutes coughing, choking, and wondering if the paint has gone far enough up your sinuses to turn your eyes green in a weird fantasy movie way.
Drink a soda any time in the next ten minutes. Owww, ow, fizzy owwww.
But I think I got a rather nifty set of textured papers out of it! Here are just a couple:
What can I do with textured paper? That's another post...but I bet some of you paper crafters are already making up your own answers!
