Painting with Bubbles – Divine Fingerprint (Rainbow + Gold) Time Lapse

I wanted to continue exploring a new art medium using bubbles and food colouring which I started last week (link below). This time I used much more, like ridiculously more food colouring for the project so it would not be so washed out and transparent. I hope you like it as much as I do, because it turned out fantastic.

If you have any requests, feedback or replies (written or video), please post them below. I would love to hear from all of you.

Painting with Bubbles – Instructions & Time Lapse

I you haven’t been watching my previous videos I have been inspired like crazy by the things I’ve found on Pinterest, so checkout my Handi Mandi TV Pinterest Page to see what I’ve pinned. If you like something you find, repin or let me know in the comment below if you want me to make a video on it.
So this week I’ve experimented with painting . . . using bubbles, yes, bubbles. It works best with food colouring, you can also use liquid watercolours. I stress liquid, because the paint won’t dissolve and it’s not enough colour saturation as it is with the food colouring. You may want to mix your own blend of bubble mix as it may not be ‘soapy’ enough depending on the brand you purchase. I’ll looking forward to exploring this medium more next week.
If you have any feedback or requests, I would LOVE to hear from you, so sound off in the comments below.

Handi Mandi TV – Sulptural Painting with Melted Crayons – Progress Report

I’m doing another painting with melted crayons, but this time I’m playing with the sculptural element. It it taking me a bit longer than anticipated and my mom pulled me outside to help do some yard work, so you will all be able to see the final product in next week’s video.

Handi Mandi TV – How To Paint With Melted Crayons

There are several different ways to “paint” with crayons by melting them with a) hairdryer (common); b) glue gun (interesting); or c) boiling water in pot with paint palette & brushes (outside the box). I figured out the last one myself after a bit of experimenting. So here you get to see some of the things you’ll need to do a similar project. I painted a replica of a sunset of Na Pali Coast, Kauai, Hawaii that I found on Pinterest (under my art board).
Please feel free to leave any comments, requests or share your own experiences using melted crayons as a medium, I would love to hear from you.
