Shaving Cream Marbling Technique

What you will need... Materials:

can of shaving cream,

tempera paints,or watercolors, inks you may experiment with your choice

............................Tip from Raven,,food coloring also works................................

paper plate

brush or comb and toothpicks work very well

piece of poster board or cardstock................or pre cut blank atc........................

precut atc or cut cardboard to atc size,,,here you may to wait and cut out your atc after coloring so you can use the best places

sponges or paper towels for clean-up

Layer about 1 inch of shaving cream onto a paper plate or tray

Level it out with a piece of cardboard as a scraper

Using your choice of paint. Paint directly on top of the shaving cream.

then using the back of the brush or a pointed stick or tooth pick. Swirl the paint. Do not push it down deep into the shaving cream. The paint will stay on the top.

Lay paper on top of the design and press down (printing technique). Pull the paper off. The shaving cream will appear to be all smeared but wait.

Use the piece of poster board to squeeze off the excess shaving cream. Like magic the design stays on the paper.

You can reuse the shaving cream until it gets drab. Just mix it in and paint again and again

no set theme and all embellishments, images are welcome

I been asked if other things can be used instead of shaving cream to do the marbling with,,I dont see any problem with this,,,as long it is still marbling you do yourself..shaving cream is cheap, easy to get and very popular with crafters,,and I like the way it smells,,lol

The shaving cream leaves the paper all smooth and creamy too (after it dries). There is a liquid starch technique that's achievable for hobbiest too. You can google it or here is a youtube video
