SHAVING foam that is!
Hi all! Becky here today to share a little fun my daughter, Maggie, & I had the other day playing with our Splash Inks & some shaving cream!
The idea is to create your own paper backgrounds with paints or inks in the foam...very similar to a mono-print (or Gelli plate), but a whole lot-a-messy & much more fun!
Here's how to do it...
1. spread plain, cheap shaving cream over the back of a plastic plate. (I didn't have plastic plates, so I covered 2 large oval paper plates with some Press-n-Seal plastic wrap.)
2. Drop some paints or inks onto the shaving cream & spread it around.
3. Turn the plate over onto a piece of paper.
4. Gently lift the paper away from the plate & the scrape the excess shaving cream away.
Here are just a couple more she did...
Here's a couple of mine...
Doesn't this one look like a face?
The ones below are the same, just in two different directions...
I love how very different they look just by turning it upside down & it looks like the paint is jumping off the page!
You can find the Splash Inks at Altered Pages, here! Although I used inexpensive mixed media paper, if I had had some Lutrador on hand, I would have played with that!
I hope you enjoyed our little experiment!
