yes...food coloring is a bit scary Wink   and speaking of crafts with food....my mom once let me finger paint with pudding when i was little....needless to say,  most of it ended up in my mouth instead of on the page

art ed is my feild....i've always wanted to do something with art...but wanted a guaranteed income....so teaching it is!  the way i see it...i have all summmer to pursue my own art career, but still have the income! 

i guess what im trying to say is--dont feel like you have to choose one or the other...you can have the best of both worlds!!!

no it stays really well.....and the shaving foam also makes the paper seem thicker/not tear as easily.

I've been doiing this for a while now...the results look so much like the real thing but its sooooo much easier!

put approx. a 1" layer of shaving foam in the bottom of a pan.

sprinkle a few  drops of liquid food coloring in your choice of colors on top of the shaving foam

swirl the food coloring around a bit with a comb, your finger, etc.  just dont over do it.

place a peice of regular white paper over the mixture.  dont push it down, but make sure the paper is touching the mixture entirely with one side.

peal the paper up carefully and scrape off the remaining foam with a strip of cardboard or a spatula. 

the same mixture can be reused a few times.

would be better if you had a picture up so we could see....but  it could be an awsome way to display photos.  you could put the banister in from floor to ceiling against a wall and tie frames to it with colorful ribbon.  another idea would be to use it as a dividing wall, that way it would provide separation without obstructing the view.
