Introduction: Paper Marbling With Food Dye and Shaving Cream
A quick and easy way to marble paper!
~ Supplies ~
~ Food Dye
~ Shaving Cream (make sure it is foam)
~ Painters Tape
~ Envelopes/ Paper
~ Tooth Picks or Spatula
Start by taping off any areas of the paper you do not want to be marbled. Since I started by marbling the flap of the envelope, I also used a different piece of paper to help cover up the area I wasn't marbling.
Cover the tray in a layer of shaving cream. Then, add a few drops of food dye onto the shaving cream. Next, take the spatula or the tooth pick and mix the food dye with the shaving cream. I use the tooth pick when I want to create more of a pattern. Using the spatula will create more of the marbled look.
Next, press the paper on top of the shaving cream. Then, pull up the paper and take the rule and scrape the shaving cream off. Let dry before using.
