Today my DragonWing Arts after-school students leaned how easy and fun it is to make marbled paper using shaving cream and liquid watercolor paints.
I taped off an area of our work table the size of our paper, 12x18". I squirted some shaving cream into the rectangle and the kids smoothed it out with a cardboard rectangle. Then, they dripped liquid watercolors into the shaving cream.
A piece of paper was placed carefully on top, and pressed gently. The paper was then removed (along with globs of gooey shaving cream), and cardboard rectangles were used to squeegee the excess shaving cream off of the paper. That's all there is to it! And here is what the result was from the piece being worked on above.
