BUBBLE PRINT PAPER

Tempera or acrylic paint (darker colors work best)
Bubble blowing liquid
Soda straw
Flat pan large enough to hold your paper size
    (clear plastic containers that doughnuts or baked
    goods come in are good because you can throw them
    away afterward)
Paper to print on, white or pastel in color, the thicker the
    better - half or quarter sheets work the best
Newspapers

Lay out the newspapers to cover your work area.

Pour bubble liquid into the pan to a depth of approximately 1/4 inch. Stir in thoroughly 1 to 3 teaspoons of paint, depending on the size of your pan.

Insert the end of the straw into the liquid and blow very gently to make bubbles covering the surface of the liquid. Or you can stir the liquid with the straw to make smaller bubbles. It seems to work better to blow fresh bubbles before each print is made.

Holding a piece of paper by the edges, lay it down on the surface of the bubbles, pressing down slightly to pop some of the bubbles. Don't let go of the paper or let it touch the liquid.

Lay the paper face up to dry. If you don't like how it turned out, you can print the paper over again one or more times, or even use a different color of paint.

The paper may curl as it dries, so you might want to flatten it under some heavy books before using it.

Suggested uses: greeting cards or stationery.
