Introduction: Easy Marble Paper

This is an easier (and cheaper) version of the marble technique you see online made on water.


  • Shaving cream
  • Paint or some kind of ink ( I used Ecoline)
  • Some cards or paper
  • a shallow glass bowl (I used a lid)
  • Some paint brushes
  • A piece of cardboard
  • Optional: someting to stirr, you can also just use the back of a paint brush

Step 1: Start With the Shaving Cream

Put some shaving cream in your glass bowl, try to make it a little even if you can

Step 2: Make Your Pattern

Put some drops of paint on the shaving cream (you need more than you think)

Mix the colours with something until you have a pattern that you like

Step 3: Put It on Paper

Put a card or a piece on paper on the coloured shaving cream, press a bit on it and pull it out.

Step 4: Scrape Off the Shaving Cream

With the cardboard you can scrape of the shaving cream. Now you can see the marbled pattern that you made!

Step 5: Have Fun!

Try it a few times in different ways and use different colours, have fun with it!
