bubbles texture tutorial by i-am-yaser bubbles texture tutorial by i-am-yaser
Made for :iconwatercolorists:

You will need:

- watercolor paper (I used 200g/m2, cold pressed, acid free);
- a bottle of bubbles;
- watercolor or drawing inks (I used both);
- container;
- a straw;
- you will also need some scrap paper or newspaper to cover things in the working area. The whole thing may turn out to be the dirtiest thing you ever made. (:

Directions:

First, pour some bubbles into a container, and add few drops of ink and watercolor. It's important not to put too much color (It can prevent bubbles from blowing). So, drop by drop you get the right color. Note: you may not need watercolor, but I wasn't satisfied with ink alone. (:

Second, put the paper on newspapers or scrap paper in order to protect bubbles from messing around.. Dip the straw into the liquid you've prepared, place it above the paper.. and.. blow... :party: BOMB the paper with colored bubbles and see the result.
Note: If you have hard time making bubbles, here are some tips. Shake or tap the straw before exhaling to let out excessive liquid. Don’t exhale to hard, do it softly. Blow one bubble at once. Practise! Be careful, inky bubbles can fly on your clothes and leave spots.

Last one, let the paper dry completely. Note: it's desirable, no iron, no fan.


Extra: experiment with different colors, size of bubbles, splashes, strength of blowing. Pop bubbles intentionally and have fun. :D get inspired by excellent photos [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] [link]

If you have any questions, you are more than welcome!
