Create some beautiful Autumnal leaves using a simple marbling technique with shaving cream, paint and glitter! Beautiful for creating Fall displays at home or in the classroom!It’s been a long time since we first had a go at shaving cream marbling! It’s such a wonderful combination of sensory, art and colour exploration and is the perfect introduction to the marbling technique for young children. The results are always beautiful and can be turned into anything you like, from wrapping paper, to gift cards or seasonal garlands.
We then laid pieces of paper onto the top of the foam and carefully lifted them off again. We used a piece of scrap card to scrape off the excess shaving cream and set them to dry. The scraping step is important or else the paper becomes logged with moisture and won’t dry properly. Even with scraping, the marbled effect seems to stay on the paper really well!
