Marbling with Shaving Cream
Here's some of the wrok in progress as I played with shaving cream. I swirled the dye around with a pastry brush - kept especially for this purpose, of course.
But while marbling is kinda fun, I find it annoying and messy. You can only dye fabric the size of the tray you're using, then you're supposed to carefully lift the fabric up and leave it to dry while covered in shaving cream. The fabric, that is. I don't exactly have spaces in my house where I can sit several metres of gucky fabric to dry, so I stuck them out on the line, dried them, then rinsed them and probably washed a lot of the colour away.
