Begin with some shaving cream in a tray or directly on your tables
These liquid watercolors are one of my most favorite thing in the art room!
Choose your color scheme and drip onto shaving cream.
Use the end of the brush upright, touching the bottom of the tray, and swirl around!
Lay the paper down on the shaving cream, rub it gently, and peel off
use a piece of cardborad or styraphone to scrape off the shaving cream and reveal the beautiful print. This is when students OOOOOOOOHH and AHHHHHH!!
Then I usually let the students play in the shaving cream at their table. You can continue to make prints, they just won’t have quite the contrast as the first one. They will leave your room smelling fresh and clean!
I then cut out circles from different warm color prints.
I painted black circles at the bottom and made the eye with oil pastels. I thought the picture needed something in th bottom corners…
So I mixed up some green and yellow and placed the corners on it, to fill in those empty white spaces and glued everything together for the finished product!
