Underglaze colour [I used slip with turquoise stain]
Liquid soap [not detergent]
A straw.

Add a couple of drops of soap to the underglaze add water to a milk consistancy.
With the straw, blow bubbles into the underglaze colour and let them spill over onto the bisqued piece. Clear glaze and fire.
Some colours worked better than others, eg yellow didn't show up that well, where as lilac and pale green worked a treat. It seemed that the thinner the mixture the more definite the bubbles showed up, almost like wire netting Smile
This would look different again if a base colour was first applied and a contrasting colour was used for the bubbles.
Lots of possiblities and heaps of fun!!!!
