Wow, what a great way to make marbled paper. So much easier than my thinning out oil paints and floating them on water. (Also much less stinky I'd imagine.)

In art class we did marbled paper, and we used acrylic paints floating on either wall paper paste or liquid starch. The liquid starch worked really well, but I can't find any anywhere.

I always use shave foam instead of gel. It's soooo much cheaper and a can lasts sooooo much longer.

I'm definitely probably going to try this some time.

Awesome! I've always wanted to try making marbled paper but never had oil paints. The only shaving cream I have is the kind that starts as a gel but turns to foam as it sits in your hand. Would this kind be ok if I waited until it was all foam? Thanks!

This is really awesome!  I love the idea! I want to try it for myself (maybe next weekend since I have Monday off) but I was thinking that it could be really awesome as a craft project for my students at school.  I'll have to share it with the art teacher and the classroom teachers.  Thanks for posting!  Grin

My friends and I tried this the other night with some super old shaving cream i found around the house. it was really cool!!! however the room rather strongly smelled of the cream, and the paper still does. Some people we've shown it to seem to like that, but i'll probably try and find a less-scented one for next time. Also, the paper took forever to dry! (we used watercolor paper.)

Okie doke....dumb question time Huh.  Is the piece of paper *say cardstock* unfolded or folded?  I have the 8.5 x 11 card stock....and lots of it.....and have been racking my brain on how to get the marble pattern just on half of it if I want to fold it to make a standard size card and have the pattern on the front.

Am I making any sense at all???   LOL Cheesy

I'd just fold it, hold the blank part at a 90 degree angle, and just touch the front to the cream. (Like a letter L.)

*DOH!*   That seems easy enough....thanks!!  Here I was trying to imagine only putting cream in half the container.  Hopefully if I dont score the fold, I can then run it through my printer.  Will have to try it....my printer can be a little cantankerous at times. Roll Eyes
