*YIKES!! I just made my first two and the food coloring bled through the cardstock!
Am I using too much shaving cream, too much food coloring or both?

This seems too simple to mess up......but then again, I didnt inheritate my mother's crafting abilities.   Cry

I just made some with my 10 and 3 year old. FUN! I was trying to do some pink/red/purple but I couldn't quite get the purple right. Will have to work on that next time.

We're going to use the paper for valentines for the party we are having next week. (We're having a party with some of the other homeschool families I know so my boys don't have to miss out!) I think I'm going to make some homemade crayons (found those here http://www.favecrafts.com/Valentines-Day/Melted-Crayon-Heart-Valentines) and glue them to the front of this paper. Wal-mart has some silicone mold pans for $9! I'll post pics of our finished cards.

Some observations:

If your paper is streaked you probably didn't wait long enough for it to try before whiping.

Using paint does work but it takes longer to dry and has an interesting effect. I think the reason the food coloring works better is because it dries super fast.

If you overmix your food coloring/shaving cream mixture you get gray! OK if thats what color you are going for but not to pretty otherwise Smiley

they turned out great! I did this project last year at one of my kids school to make mothers day cards and they had so much fun doing it. I think I will do it with my girlscout troop and let them make mothers day cards this year as well since it turned out so great. We used some pretty smelling shaving cream so it smelt good and looked good

i'd say too much food coloring. the shaving cream didn't come through any of mine. maybe the wrong kind of shaving cream? what did you use?

I used the Barbasol brand.  Im thinking I used too much of both as I got the bleeding through and my cardstock shriveled some after drying.  I think my other mistake was really pressing the cardstock into the cream and not letting it just sit on top.  Im attacking it again either today or tomorrow. I just get frustrated when I see something that seems so easy, that for me, it turns out so complicated!   Angry

I dont think it was pushing it down, I did that too. I really mashed it down so that I could get a nice even coating.

Maybe I just have cheap card stock.  I tried again yesterday only on half the sheet and it still shriveled and wouldnt lay flat when folded over.  I have to venture to the store today so maybe there is better quality card stock out there.  I will double check what Im using and see if there is a sturdier product out there.  Thanks for your help April!    Grin

I got myself a can of shaving cream and I already had the food coloring.  I'm so excited to try this out.  I am also going to try to use a highly concentrated form of kool-aide.

I've done this a couple of times and found that glossy card stock works the best. Maybe that will help?
