We did this tiger print shaving cream marbling art project/craft during our Orange week in the Color of the Week Exploration Series. Shaving cream marbling is a really easy fun and cheap way to make amazing and truly unique art work! We did this last week and made a ZEBRA, so I thought a tiger would be perfect for orange week!
Simply spread a thin amount of shaving cream onto a surface such as a cookie sheet or thick paper plate. Drop some food coloring onto the shaving cream and then use something such as a cotton swab or end of a paintbrush to swirl the food coloring around on the shaving cream. Since we were doing a tiger, I mixed red and yellow in a little bowl first to make orange and then used a dropper to drop the color on the shaving cream. We mixed that in the shaving cream first and then dropped some black food coloring on next, and then let L make lines by dragging the food coloring up and down with a cotton swab. Neat huh?!
Then you simply lay a sheet of paper on top and smooth and press a bit to transfer the print.
Afterwards, you carefully peel it off the shaving cream and set it aside for a few minutes so the coloring can set. Then you can use something such as the back straight edge of a butter knife to gently scrape the shaving cream off of the paper and you'll be left with an awesome print! Let it dry completely.
Then, similar to our Zebra, I used printed and cut out THIS tiger outline to trace on the back of our tiger marbled paper and then cut it out. After seeing how cool our Zebra shaving cream marbling craft turned out, I decided to craft this one up quite a bit so I could frame and hang both the Zebra and Tiger in the boys room. We used construction paper and craft foam to make a jungle for our tiger. L helped with some of the cutting and pasting. We loved how it turned out!
Can't wait to frame it!
