The first thing that you are going to need to do is spray some of your shaving foam onto your plate. You are then going to use a spoon to spread it out so that it is about 1-2cm thick.
We are now going to get some food colouring and put some drops of colour on the foam. You can use 2 or 3 different colours if you want to. Using the cocktail stick you are then going to swirl the colours on the top of the foam to make a nice marble pattern that you are happy with
Take your piece of A4 card and cut it in half. You are then going to fold this piece of card in half. Carefully place your piece of card face down onto the shaving foam and then leave it for a few seconds. You can then pick it up off the plate and use the lolly stick to remove any shaving foam and then follow this with the paper towels. You will then need to leave your card to dry
When you drop the food colouring onto the surface of the shaving foam it doesn’t soak in, it stays on the surface. When you put the card on the shaving foam the colour is easily transferred across. You could experiment with different colours, or by adding water or oil to the surface of the shaving foam and see how this changes the paper marbling effect.
