Learn how to use shaving cream and acrylic paints to make exciting marbled papers, whether you prefer them to be bold and dramatic or soft and subtle, or a mixture of both. Later, using your marbled papers, we will explore several projects, suitable for penning your favorite calligraphic messages.

Shaving cream, trays, stir sticks and acrylic paints will be provided. I will bring a couple of irons for flattening our dried papers.

Participants should bring:

Pencil, scissors or Exacto knife and cutting pad, ruler, glue

Assorted cardstock ( white works best but you may want to experiment with color), copy paper ( I used 32 pound weight)

Squeegee ($4 @ dollarama) or sturdy plastic straight edge for scraping off shaving cream

Calligraphy pens- I found the pens that wrote best on the “plasticized” paper were Tombow Fudenosuke, Sakura gelly roll, Staedtler pigment liners, Sharpies

Things can get messy so an apron or old clothes is a good idea as well as disposable gloves.

Please bring your lunch and a water bottle so you can eat while the marble papers are drying. After lunch, we’ll use the papers to create some special projects.

If you are able to arrive early to help set up tables and chairs, it would be most appreciated. The main door will be locked so please enter through the Northeast door.
