Did you guys see all of the amazing flea market finds yesterday on #SwapItLikeItsHot?! I still can’t believe what everyone was able to create!! Moving on to my second favorite hashtag, it’s #WednesdayPlayday over here!
It’s no secret that I love a good shaving cream activity so when I heard about this art project, how could I NOT give it a whirl with the kids.
May I present shaving cream marbelized painting. So easy. Seriously.
shaving cream (just plain ol’ white lather… not gel)
sheet pan or something similar
paint (I used plain ol’ acrylic craft paint)
heavy paper (I used card stock)
squeegee or piece of cardboard
1. Spray the shaving cream onto your pan and use your squeegee to smooth it into one even layer.
2. Drip a little bit of paint onto your shaving cream.
3. Using the toothpick, swirl the paint as much as you’d like until you get a pattern you like.
4. Place the paper on top of the paint and gently press it down. Remove the paper from the shaving cream. It will look terrible.
5. Using your cardboard squeegee scrape the shaving cream off of the page. Press your cardboard/ squeegee down to the paper… you won’t smudge the marbled paint, but will remove the excess shaving cream.
6 Allow to dry and display!
We just did small little sheets, but there’s no reason that you couldn’t do this on a table top and make wrapping paper or book bindings or stationary. I looooooove marbled paper and plan to revisit this craft one night when the kids might, ahem, be asleep…
