Re: Paper marbling

Do you draw on the shaving cream with the fat and EXPENSIVE free art
chalk, or do you shave it off and then swirl it. Does it dissolve in
the cream? I tried Sax Ultra plus watered down tempera today ...FUN and
it worked great. I need to go to the beauty supply for some hair rakes.
I used my fingers. Fun. I was so surprised to discover that it worked
great to just laythe print on the formica tabletop to squeegee it. No
reason to obsess and put paper down. In fact, I think it would be
messier and more trouble to put paper on the tables. I guess we just
squeegee the stuff off and put it back in the tray each time. My 5th
graders are going to do it. Some of them saw me do it and they can't
wait til next week. MUCH less messy than I expected. But then, I'm not
a 5th grader, am I????
