Starting with: Nienke Smit from the Netherlands, Europe.
After seeing these video about foam bubble printing with liquid food colours on paper with kids:
and seeing this: http://www.crayola.com/crafts/bubble-prints-craft/
I just had to try this with fabric!!! Unfortunately I soon found out that Procion MX is too heavy to stay in the bubbles, it lowers immediately back into the plate. And, because of the splattering, this is really not pleasant to try with Procion MX...
It also seemed impossible to blow bubbles with the (heavy) dye in the soapsolution...
So, after some thinking and experimenting, (I didn't want the foambubbles to reach my face above all!!) I created my own bubble- cup, from a fastfood cup with a cover for the straw.
Just cut a hole on 1/3 from the top, big enough to let the bubbles flow, and small enough to keep the cup in its original shape.
After that I put 15 ml. of dish soap in my cup, added 3x15 ml. of water and 5 ml. of procion MX 10% solution, and started blowing in my straw. (You might make a little hole with a pin in your straw midway, just to make sure that you never will get dye-soap-solution in your mouth by taking your breathe. Safety first!)
Soon the bubbles came out of the cup and dropped on the cloth. Leaving mainly stains on top of it :-)
But look, how nice the print is on the white plastic, right from the cup. I tried the same solution on paper:
But I didn't want a print on paper, I was looking for fabric, so I had to change plans. To be continued tomorrow!
