Sometime over the weekend, Meg and I experimented with foamy printing. (This is my made-up name. It may very well have a proper term). I think the prints turned out fabulously and were worthy of sharing.
We decided to go with three colours that would blend well together – yellow, green and blue.
We made up the following mixture in three different cups:
- 2 squirts of detergent
- 1 squirt of white glue
- 3 squirts of water
- 1 squirt of acrylic paint
- a few drops of food colouring
Meg stirred the mixture up until it was all bubbly and foamy. Using a teaspoon (and later her hands) she created patterns on the bench using a combination of the three foamy mixtures. She then made a print of her design A4 paper.
Meg made so many prints that she’s now got a good little supply of very groovy looking paper for all sorts of things – weaving, collage, drawing, the list is endless!
