  3. Squirt red, pink and purple paint on top of the shaving foam and swirl it using the end of a paint brush.
  4. Place a piece of A4 watercolour paper into the foam and paint mixture. Slightly push down in areas to ensure all areas of the watercolour paper are covered.
  5. Take the paper out of the tray and scrape off the excess foam and paint with a ruler or something similar e.g., cardboard.
