How to Create Shaving Cream Art

5 Materials
30 Minutes

Create Unique One of a Kind Art with Shaving Cream. Shaving Cream Art is a fun project that the whole family can participate in.

Materials Needed:

  • Foam Shaving Cream (not gel shaving cream)
  • Mixed Media Heavyweight Cardstock*
  • Dye Base Ink Pad Refills or Food Coloring
  • Wax Paper
  • Craft Sticks
  • Scraper Tool
  • Disposable Gloves

I use the Deflecto Stackable Caddy Organizer* to hold my ink refills and other crafty supplies.

Shaving Cream Art can get a little messy so a little prep work is necessary.

  • For easy clean up…Place a piece of wax paper over a large baking sheet.
  • Add shaving cream onto wax paper.
  • Add several drops of ink onto the shaving cream.
  • Use a craft stick to swirl the ink into the shaving cream.
  • Do not over stir or the shaving cream will become muddy.

Place card-stock directly onto the shaving cream and lightly Smoosh.

Carefully lift the card-stock from the shaving cream.

Use the scraper tool to scrape the excess shaving cream from the card-stock.

  • Without re-stirring the shaving cream, you can repeat the process several more times.
  • The first one will be the most vibrant and will get subtly lighter each time.

Each one will be different and will lighten as they dry.
