I’ve seen this project several places, including the new craft book I bought with a birthday gift card. (There’s a swear word in the title, so I won’t type it here.) Anyway, I was dying to try it out, and now Dot keeps asking me over and over if we can do it again. The results were actually kind of stunning, as we ended up with custom stationery that has an awesome marbled effect, but I was terrified the whole time because we did it in the carpeted dining room. I hightly recommend doing it in the kitchen in case one of your pans of bubbles spills.
What you’ll need to do some bubble painting:
- Dish soap
- Shallow dishes or pans
- Paper (we used blank cards and envelopes to make stationery)
Do this several times to cover the whole paper. We also used more than one color on a paper to make more colorful designs.
Here are a few of our finished bubble art pieces:
What I Learned the Hard Way: You need a LOT of food coloring in the water. I think we ended up using about eight drops to about half a cup of water.
What Dot Learned the Hard Way: Blow, don’t suck. (Oops!)
