For more detailed instructions on Shaving Cream Marble Painting, check out live it ALL IN’s blog post on it here.
- Paper in the form of Maple Leaf(s)
- Shaving cream
- Liquid watercolour
- Squeegee or hard flat surface like a credit card
1- Cut out maple leaves from a template printed off of google images or cut out from something with a maple leaf on it. I used the cut outs of the maple leaves from paper plates that I purchased at Party City. I used the outside of the plates for another activity and kept all of the inner maple leaves for another activity.
2- In a tray of some sort (I use backing trays or pyrex dishes) spray in shaving cream.
3- Add drops of liquid watercolour, food colouring, or paint throughout. I used liquid watercolour this time and it worked beautifully!
4- Using the handle of a paintbrush, toothpick, fork, etc…, mix colour into shaving cream. You will begin to see marbled effect beginning to take shape.
5- Once you’re satisfied with the look of the colour in the shaving cream, lay maple leaves on top of shaving cream.
6- Press down gently on paper to ensure that all corners and parts are covered in shaving cream mixture.
7- Remove paper maples leaves from the shaving cream.
8- Lay paper shaving cream side up on separate tray and hold down one corner with finger.
9- Using squeegee or straight edge, scrape off excess shaving cream.
10- You should now see a gorgeous marbleized effect coloured onto the paper. This pattern and colour will not come off once dry.
11- Lay maple leaves out to dry and use them to decorate! Make garland, place them in frames, decorate frames and mirrors, give them as cards, etc.
