What You Need:
quality watercolor paper, water based paints, brush, and bubble wrap.


Step 1:
Cover your paper with the paint. I used burgundy wine.

Step 2:
Press bubble wrap onto the wet paper.

Step 3:
Press to dry with the bubble wrap still on.

Step 4:
Remove the bubble wrap and wa-la! textured paper! Try this with crumpled foil or saran wrap!

That would look really neat as a wallpaper, especially with the big bubble wrap.  How hard is it to pull the bubble wrap off?  does it stick or come of easily?  Looks great.

I agree and think that would look great to do for a cover. Or even wallpaper. GREAT IDEA!

I know saran/ cling wrap comes off easily, probably because its plastic, so bubble wrap should too.

The saran wrap method is extra cool if you use more than one colour paint, and 'blend' them together after youve put slightly wrinkled saran wrap on top.

The bubble wrap comes off really easily, but it will have paint on it, so it's not really usable again.
On a side note, you can get bubble wrap really inexpensively at your local $ Tree (my fave store).

I also wanted to put in my original post- that I just put my website up and it has more tutorials and projects- check it out!!

Wow, awesome idea! really appeals to my inner 3 yr old. teehee! I <3 bubble wrap! lol.

The only question i have is Won't the paint crack once it's dry, if u try and bend the paper eg to make a bookcover? Coz the paint has to be applied  a little thickly in order for the bubble wrap to make an imprint?

It doesn't really crack, especially if you iron it, but the watercolor paper is hard to bend and a little too thick for a book cover. I used really really heavy watercolor paper, you could try with something lighter- just tape down the edges to keep it from curling.
