During her presentation Karen also showed us how to take pictures using Frozen Bubbles. Here are the instructions to make them:
Frozen Bubbles – Mix together 200 ml of warm water, 35 ml corn syrup, 35 ml dish soap and 2 tbsp sugar. – For bubbles to freeze before they pop the temperature needs to be well below freezing. Ideal conditions are -25 degrees C with no wind. – Using a straw, gently blow bubbles onto snow or whatever surface you choose. Grab your camera and start shooting as ice patterns begin to form and before the bubbles break!
