bubble wrap printing/printing with found objects tutorial


Use a piece of scrap cardboard to smear a thin layer of
acrylic across a piece of waxed paper, or paper plate, or
foam produce tray--you get the idea.


Press a piece of bubble wrap, bubble side down, into
the paint . . .


. . .peel it up . . .


. . .and press it onto your base paper.


Want more print marks? Use found objects like kitchen
utensils--here I use a wine cork. No kidding, I bought a huge
zip-lock bag of wine corks at a garage sale for 50 cents--
how weird is that? But they make great circle prints!
