Bubble Wrap Roller Printing: New Tips
Today, I am going to share with you a tutorial which is quite easy to reproduce, but above all, some tips on how to create an instant and amazing pattern. An idea inspired by old wallpaper printing rollers!
You Will Need:
- Bubble wrap
- 1 ink roller with a polyamide core
- 1 roll of double-sided craft tape
- 1 pair of scissors
- tubes of acrylic paint
- 1 paint tray
- 1 sheet of thick paper (here I use 1 block of mixed media Artboard paper)
These products are currently available at GreatArt Online or in the art supply shop in London Shoreditch..
Prepare the Roll
1. Stick a strip of double-sided tape on the polyamide core of the ink roller. Non-slip plastic, polyamide facilitates the adhesion of the tape in this recipe.
2. Then, apply the bubble wrap around the bearing, sticking it with the tape. The strip of bubble wrap needs to cover perfectly without overlapping.
3. You can see here, how it should look!
1. Add a dab of pure colour to the tray.
2. Use the roller in small successive back-and-forth movements to distribute the paint over the entire surface of the bubble wrap.
1. Once the bubble wrap is covered with paint, apply the colour from top to bottom on the paper as if to create strips of patterns.
2. It’s great, the pattern takes place in the blink of an eye.
Once the paper is completely filled, I let the paint dry.
Once everything is dry, I can then dress this textured polka dot background.
Why not paint flowers or add a little paper-cut bird?
This bubble wrap pattern is so quick to execute! Come on, it’s your turn.
