Day 21: Paper printing

Today Adam and I printed our own paper using just food coloring and shaving cream. We did this once before to try out when he was teaching art at an elementary school. It was a blast since we knew what we were doing this time around. We just sprayed the cream in a large roasting pan, drizzled the food coloring over the top and used toothpicks to mix it around. Great fun! We made a few different prints, and then mixed all the colors up to give us a background color and did it all over again. Then we got silly and made prints of our hands. I've also included pictures of the other things we did (advent calendar and the tree with the paper chain!)
