I came across an interesting printing method while watching a QTV show and decided to try it out. It is a novel way to do marbling. I laid a piece of plastic out and sprayed shaving cream over it. Then I dropped textile paint on to it. Using a stick I moved the paint around in swirl patterns , mixing the 2 colours together as I went. When I had the desired effect I laid a white cotton square piece of fabric over the ink and pressed lightly. I left this to dry over night then rinsed it out. The result was a lovely marbled piece of fabric which I stitched to create the look of water.
I used a variety of colours of cottons to create depth to the piece.
