Printing with Bubblewrap

Journal+Bubble-745x1024 (1)Printing with bubble wrap is a great intro to printmaking. I love how these circles end up looking like marbles.

 

Materials:
• Art journal or 6″ x 9″ drawing paper
• Bubble wrap
• Acrylic paint
• Paper plate
• Paint brush
• Pencil crayons
• Paper towels

 

PREP: Cut panels of bubble wrap that are smaller than the journal pages so that the paint wouldn’t go all the way to the edges.
1. Students use a brush to spread acrylic paint on a paper plate.
2. The bubble wrap is pressed into the paint (bubble side down) and then printed in the center of a blank journal page.
3. After a successful print is made, students pressed a paper towel on top of the page to absorb any extra paint.
4. When the paint felt dry, the students used colored pencils to color in the bubbles.
