  • 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 can use this process to create even larger pieces of art.
