Ready for Cathy's tutorial????

Shaving Cream and Stencils
It's clean, it smells good and it makes great art!!!!  

Cathy has a quick tutorial that will get you BIG results!

  • Start by quirting some shaving cream into a cookie sheet with sides.  
  • Smooth it out with a ruler or scraper...just like icing a cake.  
  • Drip lots of drops of alcohol ink all over the shaving cream.  
  • Use a toothpick to swirl the ink around creating cool marbling effects.  It will look delicious.
  • Gently tap the Windswept stencil into the shaving cream.
  • Now take a sheet of Bristol paper or watercolor paper and place on top and smooth.
  • Remove paper and scrape off the shaving cream with scraper!!!  If there is ink left in the saving cream, do it again for a softer effect. Don't forget the stencil!  
  • Place the goopy stencil on paper and gently tap. 

Remove and scrape away shaving cream..TA DA


  1. Cathy's work is ALWAYS outstanding!! This is even more proof of that, Cathy! Congratulations!

  2. Cool technique! Awesome stencils too!

  3. Oh, I am in love again. Beautiful designs. Funny thing is I was just wanting to try that Marbella technique. Saw a video yesterday. The windswept tree is perfect I this technique.

  4. Gorgeous! I had stopped using the shaving cream marbelling technique, but I'm now going back to it -- and I agree with Denise that the windswept tree is perfect for this kind of project! Love these results!

  5. I LOVE the windswept shaving cream trees!! Pretty, pretty, pretty!
