More E-Guides Welcome to Sustainable Baby Steps In my years of green living, I've found the simplest, easiest way to help others "go green" is through introducing them to the many uses of essential oils. Want to learn more about how I do that? Your Unique Wrapping Alternative One beautiful and sustainable alternative to traditional wrapping paper is fabric gift wrap.
I came across this idea when I was researching Golden's new High Flow Acrylics, and immediately had to try it! A Shallow Tray - anything like a baking sheet or shallow plastic tub will work. The cheaper and foamier the better the gel stuff is harder to work with. A Few Toothpicks or Skewer Sticks - anything with a fine tip will work, and you can even use a popcicle stick.
You can also use a marbling comb like the pink one pictured above, but it's not necessary at all - I didn't use it any of the examples. Even an old piece of coated cardboard or chipboard will work though it will soggy and won't last!
They behave like inks, which makes them ideal for marbling. Dye-Na-Flow also worked well I applied it with a dropper and is good for use on both fabric and paper. Paper or Fabric - I used a sturdy Japanese Sumi-e paper and bleached muslin in my experiments, but just about any smooth paper should work.
Paper Towels, Baby Wipes or Rags - these can be helpful to clean paint-infused shaving cream off your tools as you work, though the whole thing is easy water cleanup!
You're Ready to Start! Begin by spraying shaving cream into your tray. Using your hand or your spreader, blend and smooth the shaving cream so you have a relatively flat surface.
It spreads like fluffy icing! It's handy if your spread shaving cream is roughly the same size as your paper. Drop paint onto the surface of the shaving cream. I found I got the best results when I started with three colors and spaced the drops of paint out over the whole surface of the shaving cream.
I did mine in a very random pattern. Next, take your toothpick or skewer and drag it through the shaving cream, blending the dots. You can do it all in one direction.
Or, you can shake it up and create swirls. You could even get a book of marbling patterns from your local library and go for complex patterns!
Put the paper down onto the shaving cream. Gently press to ensure that every part of the paper is in contact with the surface of the shaving cream.
Pull the paper up - and don't be scared! It will look like all you got was a big hot mess, but it will get better! Put you paper down and gently scrape away the shaving cream. The gorgeous marbled pattern will be revealed!
Be careful - the paper will be damp, and if it's thin, it may tear. Here's how the paper looked after it was scraped and dried! You may think that after that first piece of paper you have to clean your tray off and start all over again with fresh shaving cream!Paper Fabric Glitter, Petaluma, California.
