Bubble wrap paintings by Toledo City teacher are making heads turn

CEBU CITY, Philippines– Paintings are usually wrapped with bubble wrap when they’re in transit.

This gives the painting a security blanket so that it cannot be easily destroyed.

But a teacher in Toledo City, Cebu wanted to incorporate bubble wraps into her paintings.

Yes, that is right! Bethram Dacuma, 26, is making heads turn with her bubble wrap-inspired masterpieces.

Technically, Dacuma paints her art pieces looking like they’re covered with bubble wrap, that plastic packaging material in sheets containing numerous small air cushions designed to protect fragile goods.

“I used bubble wrap to express my gratitude for life. It reminded me of fragile things wrapped with bubbles that keep goods safe and secure during transit. Life for me is as fragile as things that should be wrapped with bubbles. You only live once so live it well! Take care of your body,” she said.

This is following a motorcycle accident that happened to her last year.

Dacuma shared that it takes her usually two to three days to finish one piece because of the details that she needs to perfect to make her paintings look more realistic.

Come, let us take a look at some of her bubble wrap paintings:
