shaving cream crafts

One of my finished tags. The background marbling was done with shaving cream and acrylic paint.

There are so many different ways to give your papercrafts a marbled look, but I want to tell you about one I used for the first time today and had fantastic results with. Best of all, this technique is fairly inexpensive – all you need is small bottles of acrylic craft paint, a bottle of white shaving cream and paper. I chose to make marbled tags, but there is no reason why you could not make large sheets of paper using this method or marble scraps of paper you have on hand.

Here is how this technique works – and the results vary depending on the amount of paint you use and how much you mix the paint into the shaving cream. Just remember if you blend the colors too much you could end up with muddy marbling. This is not always a bad thing – it just depends on what you prefer.

A thin layer of shaving cream is all you need for the marbling technique.

First I squirted a single layer of shaving cream into the bottom of a throw away mini-bread pan – and later decided to use my plastic craft glitter catcher which gave me more room to work.
