Summary – Making abstract images using a “bubble sandwich” – a work in progress.
Making a bubble-sandwich abstract setup
Get two pieces of flat textured glass
Make a thick bubbly mix from soap and water
Place the bubbles on one sheet of glass
Cover with the 2nd sheet
Support your “sandwich” on glasses or boxes
6-12 ” above your work surface
Place colored objects or paper on the work surface
Macro lens & tripod completes the setup
This is a work in progress
Just thought of giving it a try this morning
(since then have two band-aids on my fingers 😦 )
I’m going to try other liquid combos – maybe water & oil
and different glass textures
(try a stained glass supply house to get your glass)
As of this moment
I’m not too impressed with the results, but
See lots of potential
Makes for an interesting indoor rainy day project
See this post for variations on this theme
Apart from Nik tutorials
This is by far my most viewed post
