Day 14 of Kidding Around was about bubbles, which included directions to do some bubble printing. It looked really fun, so we gathered up the supplies: paper, bubble mix, food color, straws, and a tray.
We poured bubble mix in the tray, added food color, and used the straw to make our bubbles. So far, so good. But when we touched our paper to the bubbles, then gently pulled the paper away... nothing. The bubbles popped and left behind a moist spot, but nothing like the samples. We added more color and tried again - still no good. We tried a bunch of other things before finally laying the paper down in the bubble mix itself (which the instructions said explicitly NOT to do) and leaving it overnight to see what would happen.
Trevor was disappointed, of course, and suggested we do Marble Art instead (since it sounds sort of like Bubble Art). So we did.
The next morning when we checked on our bubbles, we found that the paper was totally dry and had these interesting feather patterns all over it. We glued our Bubble Art (such as it was) and our Marble Art into our journals.
Have any of you successfully done bubble prints? I wish I knew where we went wrong!
