In class Tuesday, Sandy demoed how to blow bubbles of a mix of water, fluid acrylic paint and Dawn dishwashing liquid (I didn't ask if it had to be Dawn or not). Taking a large straw, you blow into the mix, creating bubbles coming to the surface. Then you take your watercolor paper and touch it onto the bubbles, transferring them to the paper. Easy! And fun :) Have no idea what I will do with these, though - I don't "see" anything there but I guess I'll look at some photos to get some ideas. Something under the sea? Perhaps some grapes hanging on the vine? Maybe a Labradoodle?
