Want to know what the biggest challenge was while filming this video? not popping all the bubble wrap! seriously, I mean who doesn’t love bubble wrap!
If you’re looking at adding visual interest to your art, this is the way to do it. You’ll never get the same imprint twice:
- apply paint on the bubble wrap, press on your surface
- apply paint on your palette paper, press bubble wrap on that, then press on paper – you’ll get good physical texture with this one
- use a brayer and apply paint on the bubble wrap for a smoother finish
- use bubble wrap and press on a wet painting to remove some paint
- use the whole piece, parts of it, or cut into pieces and glue onto little wood blocks for instant stamps.
I hope you enjoy having fun creating this project.
