Lay the shallow pan on a flat surface. Spray scented shaving cream on the bottom of the pan, and even it out using a spatula. Make sure that you only have a thin layer.
If you want to add color to your paper, add dots of food coloring to the shaving cream layer. Drag the edge of the spatula through the food coloring to make wavy lines and patterns. Avoid blending the colors completely together.
Once everything is prepared, carefully lay a piece of paper on the colored shaving cream. Make sure that all parts of the paper touch the shaving cream.
Remove the paper from the pan. Gently blot off the shaving cream, being careful not to wipe too vigorously at the paper, which can cause the colors to run. Allow the paper to dry completely.
If the paper curls during the drying period, iron it on low heat for a few seconds.
