Sweet Dreaming of Summer
February 2, 2018
I’m Dreaming of Summer and bubbles floating through the air in a lovely meadow. Here’s a daisy almost ready for the bubble to land. There are lovely reflections of the flower colors in the bubble in such a fun way. The color that won the poll was White and Magenta was close behind.
In Part Two this daisy ended up being white with a hint of the magenta with a lovely bright and sunny yellow center. I hope this brings you smiles and joy as you create a bit of Summer in the middle of winter. Using Fluid acrylic paints and craft sticks to lay in the flower, stem and leaves you can end up with a fun and easy painting. Enjoy and create!
In the first video I showed you how to make shimmering soap bubbles with poured fluids-art paints in this video https://youtu.be/5alW5N7gV3I ! It really is deceptively simple and so effective! I’m really excited to bring this technique to you!

There’s no silicon oil or torching in my projects as I really worry about the possible side effects of heating the acrylic paints and the materials they are made from. I’m also concerned with the possible issues down the line with the paint not forming a good bond with the surface because of the oils preventing proper adhesion.
We all have to weigh the pros and cons of how we interact with our art supplies. Experimenting can be exciting and beautiful, but there can be consequences we don’t know about yet. As with any thing in life be informed by reputable sources and your own common sense. 🙂
