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:

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.

    You scrap the excess shaving cream off. I have a picture included. After that what's left will dry smooth.

    I have done this in the past and its lots of fun making marbled paper using all the colors of inks. Kids love doing it also!
