If you'd like to try this technique, here's what you need:
- Shaving cream (the less expensive the better), unscented, without any emollients. I've found that Barabasol in the red can works best
- Re-inkers (I used Stampin' Up, but any dye based re-inker will work)
- Glossy photo paper (you can use regular CS but it gets even messier)
- Pie tins
- Something to scrape with (I used my stoneware scrapper from Pampered Chef)
Now for the fun part. Follow these simple steps. I suggest having lots of paper towels around, too. It's best to mass produce this otherwise, you waste supplies and each page you make is very unique. I used my Pampered Chef baking racks to dry the paper on.
Here are the steps:
- Spray a pile of shaving cream into the pie plate
- Add drops from the re-inkers. I usually limit to 3 complementary colors. For this sample, I used Barely Banana, Bashful Blue and Gable Green.
- Use a chopstick or knife to swirl the ink through the shaving cream. Be careful not to blend too much
- Take your first piece of paper and smoosh it into the shaving cream mixture
- Scrape the shaving cream off the paper
- Take a paper towel to remove any extra shaving cream
- Place on rack to dry
Come join us tomorrow (Sunday) for some stamping fun. There's still room for you.
