Rainbow inks

Has anyone used the Rainbow or Metallic inks in the shaving cream technique? I tried it the other day and was really pleased with the results! I was especially impressed with the Metallics.

I've also used them with Diamond Glaze and tissue paper on the back of acetate, with equally great results. Just thought it might give someone another idea to play with.

I've heard alot about the shaving cream technique, but unfortunately have never seen it in person. Know what you mean about Dee's inks and acetate. They look super
It's there a site to get directions for the shaving cream tech?

I have never heard of the shaving cream technique but it sounds intriguing.. can anyone tell me a bit more about it? Love trying new things.

Just as long as it doesn't work like the recipie that said mix food colouring with shaving cream and give to kids in bath-tub to finger paint walls and bodies with (easy clean -up ) . yahhhhh sure... dyed their bodies colours that took days to fade and the towels etc had to be tie died after wards lol lol .

Shaving Cream Technique

Hopefully, these directions will be clear.
I use a shallow pan, large enough for the cardstock I want to dye.
1. Put a layer of shaving cream (the cheaper the better-not the gel type) in the pan and spread in an even layer.
2. Take complimentary colors of your reinkers and place drops randomly over the shaving cream.
3. Use a craft stick, bamboo skewer or even and old comb and mix the ink colors into the shaving cream. Don't mix too much, or you may get a muddy mess!
4. Now, take your piece of cardstock and place it onto the shaving cream. Press it down lightly, making sure that the entire piece comes in contact with the shaving cream.
5. Carefully lift a corner of the cardstock and remove it from the pan. At this point you can carefully remove the excess shaving cream with an old spatula, wipe it off with a paper towel, or even let the shaving cream dissipate on it's own for a different look.
I have used both glossy and matt cardstock and have had good look with each. The glossy does give you brighter colors. You can keep dying as long as the ink holds out. After a while it may begin to look rather muddy. At that point I've sometimes been able to add more color and have still gotten a good effect. If not, just get rid of it and start again. It's really a very inexpensive technique that can produce great results.

The Metallic Reinkers work especially great when used as as accent.

Why not try it and let me know what you think?

Re: Example

I'll see what I can come up with tomorrow. We just yesterday got a new scanner and I'm in the process of playing with it. As soon as I am familiar with it, I'd be happy to send some samples along.

Have a great evening!

Cathy

Thumbs up Tried the shaving cream technique!

Followed your wonderful directions Cathy and got some great results! Hated to throw away all that great ink so we put it in throw away containers (cool whip and such) then when we were done playing with the cookie sheet--mixed up the ink and cream in the containers (each color batch in seperate containers) and put in on new paper like frosting. Got wonderful full color paper to go with our marbled paper! I've got to say though, we were really inked up on our hands. Have to remember surgical gloves next time. The nice side benefit was the great smell of the paper from the shaving cream--at least that was what my hubby thought.
Now we've got to try Dee's metallics on it, can't wait!Cathy thanks for the great Directions!

Shaving cream

Jan

Glad you enjoyed the directions! Sorry, but I should have advised everyone to wear gloves. I use them so often that I never gave it a second thought. I keep a box of them on my work table.

Great idea about mixing the color in the left over shaving cream! Definitely will try that.

If you were happy with these results, wait until you try the metallics!!

Cathy

Jan, my only advice using the metallics is - Less is more! The first time I tried them I jumped in and used just metallics. For my taste, they were a bit overdone - maybe even gaudy.

I find that if you mix them with your other inks, they are really great. You can really control where you place them, so they become a great accent.

Let me know how you do and have fun.

Cathy

Thumbs up Metallics and Shaving Cream

Did the metallics this weekend and had great results We did our technique of saving and making the full pages, but that didn't work out as well, must be something about metallics? But really, really love our marbled papers! This is a technique I will definitely be using for Christmas--can't wait to make my Christmas cards--just rec'd Dee's Duet Christmas stamps and I'm thinking they will look smashing on this marbled Thanks for all your advice, Cathy, it came in handy.
