Soap Bubbles


Black paper with metallic colored pencils make for a great study of soap bubbles! Here, the rougher surface of Mi Teintes pastel paper was used. Circular templates with very sharp pencils created the outlines of the bubbles, and then the pencils were used to create the reflections inside the bubbles and the iridescent qualities that make soap bubbles so beautiful. Below, same technique but on the smoother side of the black Mi Teintes paper.

    1. These soap bubbles were fun to do, Fraggy. You are right – the ones on the more textured side do look more clear. I think it is because there is more tooth for the pencil pigment to attach to.
