Shaving Cream Marbling on Fabric

A few quilty sisters and I got together recently and tried our hand with the ancient art of marbling.

We did it with shaving cream.

We are not Rembrandt, Monet or Picasso. 

We are impressionist artist wannabes.

Pat is mixing her shaving cream to create a light milk chocolate background.

Examples of our creativity!

Donna could be creating a confectionary delight!

We had plenty of fun!

We used cheap dollar store shaving cream and not so cheap Tsukineko inks.  I have since done a Google search on ‘shaving cream marbling on fabric’ (maybe I should have done this first), and discovered that fiber reactive dyes and textile paints can be successfully used.  There are lots of tutorials out there.  This is a quick and fun project!
