I first saw this a few years ago at an art camp and have wanted to try it with the kids, after several failed attempts to substitute the ingredients for things I already had a trip to Hobby Lobby was in order.
What you'll need:
dish soap (I used original Dawn)
(round containers work better than square and a 16 oz size worked the best)
*newspaper is optional but be warned it will get messy
Lay the paper gently over the bubbles and lift off, let them pop. Keep adding as many as you want, if the bubbles don't seem to have enough paint in them you'll need to add more paint to the mixture.Also we found that medium sized bubbles work the best, the larger the bubble hold less paint the smaller the bubble more paint.
The kids said hands down it was one of the most fun art projects they have done ever!
Besides using this as artwork we plan on using this technique to make cards and maybe even some wrapping paper.
