This looks like great fun. I really think I have to try this out.

This is a fun and easy crafting project that results in beautiful marbleized paper.   You start with shaving cream, dot on some ink, swirl it around, smoosh paper into it, then squeegee the shaving cream off the paper and that’s it!  You never know exactly what you will get until you scrape off the layer of shaving cream but the results are usually delightful.  Clean up is super easy which is another plus.

I crafted with my friend Margaret today and we were having so much fun that we didn’t want to stop. Playing with the lemon lime scented foam and the beautiful colored ink was both relaxing and satisfying.

Update: For a look at marbleizing using gouache and acrylics, check out the blog by Wayside Artistwhere she experiments by replacing the ink with thinned down gouache and acrylic paint.
