I took this picture of the dog from the dog food bag that I had enclosed in vinyl and put it in the sink with sudsy water. I pushed it up and down like washing out clothes, rinsed it and put it on a dish towel.
Nothing happened. Doggie survived! And, I did this twice and water did not get in.
Now, I think that this experiment has great potential for using pictures of grandchildren, poems, children's art work, adult artwork, etc etc etc. Experiment is a success!
