To paint marbled paper with shaving cream, mix shaving cream with liquid watercolor paint, and place a sheet of paper on the mixture. After removing it and scraping it clean, let it dry. This 40-minute craft requires shaving cream, a pie plate, liquid watercolor paint, a spoon, a popsicle stick and heavy paper.
- Mix shaving cream and paint
Dispense a thick layer of shaving cream into a pie plate, and smooth the surface with the back of a spoon. Then, dribble several colors of liquid watercolor paint on top. Swirl the spoon through the mixture to create colorful patterns, but leave plenty of the white shaving cream visible.
- Add paper
Smooth the shaving cream with the spoon, and then place one sheet of light-colored heavy paper face down in the pie plate. Press it down gently, and wait 20 seconds before lifting it out.
- Clean the paper
Place the paper flat on your work surface with the wet side up. Scrape off the excess shaving cream with the side of a popsicle stick, and then scrape off the stick on the edge of the pie plate.
- Dry the paper
Set the marbled paper in a well-ventilated area away from curious children and pets. Leave it undisturbed until it dries.
