A technique using dye powder and water- I used my bathroom floor to drop some dye powder against the wet surface to see what happens, the powder turned into inks and bled, It gave a really nice effect so I decided to try different colours together and I wanted to make a bubble effect so I put some water in a white bowl (in the bathroom sink) and added a pea size hand wash to give that bublle effect, I started the water and turned the shower to the strongest level (holding it in my hand for control) and sprinkled dye powder followed by a different colour. Something worth a try, I will be getting this image digitally printed to use for a garment as the bubbles fit my project theme
