Shaving Cream Marbelized Paper


Tuesday afternoon the residents made greeting cards such as those pictured above. This is a very simple process and each picture you make is unique! All it takes is shaving cream and food coloring. Spray the shaving cream into a thick layer of a cake pan. Then drop several drops of food coloring onto the shaving cream. We used blue and green in one cake pan and red and yellow in another cake pan. Then take a kebab stick and swirl the colors around. Place a piece of painters tape on the top back of the card and hold onto each end as you press the front of the card into the shaving cream. Tap it gently and make sure all of the card has been pressed in. Pull up the card by holding onto the tape ends. Set the card on 2-3 layers of paper towels. Use a ruler to slough off the excess shaving cream and see your design! Remove the painters tape and let the card dry.
