Want to make some marbled paper?
We'll show you how to use shaving foam and ink or paint to create swirly patterns and prints!
You can use paper to print onto, or even your hands!
German artist Gerhard Richter is well-known for his abstract works. In these paintings, he scraped paint across the canvas. Underneath this top layer of paint, Richter sometimes paints a detailed composition, which sometimes peeks through.
In this activity we will scrape the foam off the paper to reveal our artwork!
