    Don't have shaving cream? Want to dye RIGHT NOW? A bar of soap grated and whirred in a blenderfood processor results in the same thing. My father used a shaving mug and whipped the wet soap to make cream which he applied with the whipping brush. A whisk would also work. All done dyeing? Save soap foam in a jar and use again!!!
    Also…eyeshadow mixed with modge podge can be used over the paint to make glittery, metalic touches. Try dipping cookie cutters in eyeshadow liquid and touch surface of foam. Voila! A pattern!

    Well that's ok ! But the colors look to faded as in not real deep bringing out the colors . The fabric you used can this same process be done with 100 % cotton T–Shirts ? ? Pls respond .

    I have been looking for an easy way to dye fabric and this looks like just what I want! Tie dye is all bound up and whatnot and to me you cannot see what the finished piece will look like– with this– you can see just what goes where as far as design goes. I love this video and Thank you so much for sharing. 🙂

    Thanks and going to look for something other to use rather than toxic shaving cream. Everything goes down the drain and would like to find product that does not harm water. Any ideas greatly appreciated 👍

    Ha! I luved that you used a grout trowel! Smart! You don't say in the video or put the fabric info in your info box. What's the fabric? That will make a difference in setting and washing…

    Shocked at some of the comments. I was taught "If you don't have anything nice to stay, don't say anything". I guess those days are long gone! I enjoyed watching the video and thank you for all the information to get my project done. Thank you for taking the time to demo this for us.

    Cool idea! One word of CAUTION here: Fabric dyes are not food safe items, and therefore should not be used in any baking or cook ware that is to be used again later on for food. Certain chemicals can leave an invisible residue on surfaces. And in metal that's been already used there are tiny pits in which chemicals may collect even with repeated washing. Art teachers and my research have both told me that it is never wise to use fabric dyes in the kitchen EVER – I mean, we were taught it is a major food safety No-No – and all food prep and fabric dye items need to be kept as FAR apart as possible. Like totally separate worlds – that is how far apart i've been told they need to remain. Often, in fiber arts classes, safety equipment, including ventilation units are used, and never anyplace near where there are children or there might be food. Hate to have to day it – but that's what I had to learn myself at one time.

    This item has been placed onto YouTube to offer assistance and to provide an example of the technique that he has found successful. If you don't like it then just move on. It is NOT an opportunity to sprout vitriol. You are just trolls and have nothing of consequence to add to the discussion.

    To people nitpicking in the comments:

    Yes, it is "skew-er" and not "skoo-er." And yep, that's a trowel, not a squeegee, although if you listen, she SAYS she knows it's a trowel but is calling it a squeegee because that's the function she's using it for at the moment.

    Yes, marbling often works better with a main color and a couple shades of a complimentary color.

    Yes, the lighting was a bit hard to see.

    And yes, the yellow seemed a bit overwhelming on the shaving cream although you can see that when she starts scraping it off the fabric, its not as intense as it looked.

    Overmixed? For traditional marbling, possibly, but that's also a matter of taste.

    If you wait until the very end, she gave a few still shots of the final product and they actually look pretty darn good.

    All that acknowledged, nonetheless, SHAME on all of you.

    It's a quick, clear tutorial that gives the materials and intro to technique. How much did you pay to see/learn this? Nothing. Zero $$.

    So entitled and rude to get something for free that YOU sought out – YOU clicked the link – and then complain about little details of it.

    Especially because the nature of your whining. You would personally use less yellow and mix less? Cool, then you already know that, you didn't need the tutorial to explain it to you. You'd personally use fewer colors? Great, then you don't need the tutorial to contain a lesson in color theory.

    And double shame on all those who need to learn the difference between Critique and Criticism.

    There were some good Critique comments, such as saying they personally prefer a main color and a couple complimentary colors.

    You're not telling the creator their work sucks – you're letting them know how you responded and engaged with their work, and why.

    Criticism is telling someone their work is bad. Usually, because you don't like it. Surprise! Not everything you dislike is objectively bad.

    Critique contains useful information presented respectfully.

    Criticism usually only contains your personal opinion and preference, and doesn't usually have useful information the creator can take action on.

    "I'd prefer less yellow" is Critique because the artist can choose to acknowledge that and do another piece with less yellow if they're interested in appealing to your taste. And other artists may read that and think "hmm yes I knew there was something that felt off to me, and now I realize, that's what it was."

    But comments like "it's like a kid's girl scout project" and "what even did she make?" are useless comments. There's no information about what you would have liked
    Only that you're complaining about the process choices made on a project you chose to watch. For free.

    In 2018 I suggest to every fellow artist/creator this one guideline; No money = no vote. No credentials = no opinion. No respect = not hearing you out.

    If someone isn't buying, they don't get a say on the project's process or outcome.

    If someone can't provide a source or explain a better way – and show results, ideally, their OWN results, they don't get an opinion about process.

    And if someone can't offer their suggestions respectfully and politely, then there's no need to politely hear out the opinions of a rude person.

    Interesting…I'm a fibre artist, & years ago taught the beautiful art of "Papermaking" along with, "Suminagashi," which is an ancient (dates as far back as the 12th century) Japanese art form technique of creating very intricate marbled designs onto handmade paper …Oil paints are dripped onto the surface of a vat of plain water…A "tool" such as a needle or bamboo stick, etc. is used to gently swirl the colors together creating beautiful patterns…Since oil doesn't mix w/ water, the paint doesn't sink below the surface of the water…(It floats on top) The paper is then carefully lowered onto the water surface where it picks up the beautiful marbled designs, & then is carefully picked straight up out of the vat & air dried…I have such admiration for creative thinkers & craftspeople…
