Foam Marbling Tutorial
April 5th, 2010 by Craftylocks

This paper crafts for children activity gave us all a real buzz, it was fun to do and the decorated paper can be used for so many things! Materials needed for this activity are shaving foam and dyes or food colorings. Also a container to squirt the shaving foam in and of course lots of paper.

Foam Marbling 1 Shake the shaving foam well and squirt a layer into a dish.
Foam Marbling 2 Dribble dye or food coloring onto the shaving foam.
Foam Marbling 3 Gently stir the colours to mix them.
Foam Marbling 4 Lay a piece of paper on the foam and dye and gently
press the paper so that most of it touches the foam.
Foam Marbling 5 Peel the paper off. Leave it to dry completely. This can take
a few hours if it is very thick Once it is dry brush off the shaving foam to reveal the print on the paper.

I will try this G. I was impatient with waiting for them to dry and managed to smudge a few half dry ones and ruin them so this option could suit me!

If you don’t want to wait for the project to dry, you can wipe the paper off with a wet paper towel. The color sets immediately. You need lots of wet paper towels. Can get messy.
