Shaving Cream Marbling
- Dear Group...
You can see an example of shaving cream marbling by going on the internet to www.hgtv.com (the Home & Garden TV network) and then when you see the search box in the upper left hand corner, type in CDS-1421 (this is an episode from the Carol Duval Show). You can also put in the following episode numbers to see two segments done by Diane Maurer. CDS-413 and CDS-412. One is on paste papers, the other on suminagashi.
Someone wrote asked if this method (shaving cream) might help in getting colors to penetrate more. On that subject I might suggest a method I used when marbling on ultra suede (yes, that imitation suede which costs $60/yd). You alum the material the same as paper and let it dry completely. Then after you put the fabric on the marbing pattern (I used acrylic paints) you walk away and don't peek for at least two hours. It takes that long for the colors to really permeate the fabric. By the way, I found (at a garage sale) a dress made from ultra suede which I cut apart to use for the marbling. The nice thing about ultra suede is that it doesn't need to be hemed, no raw edges, and it is washable.
Have fun with playing with shaving cream, but keep in mind this is playing.

- Thanks for the link....it's prettier than I imagined. Dolores.....thanks.
Isn't the best time to be had in marbling when we ARE playing?
I may *seem* to take marbling seriously, but it's more along the lines of
a fun challenge (vendetta???) figuring out the old stuff. And I never
really considered myself an artist.....more a scientist in a sense with
marbling. Or, alternately on thise big orders....a human marbling
machine....ugh, would rather play with shaving cream and other fun stuff.
