dyeing with shaving cream

Name: Leah
Message: I've seen people walking down the street with a tie-dye like no other I've seen. When I asked a gal sporting one how she did it, she replied it was like a shaving cream foam type that spread around where you want it to go. Do you have any idea what this is, how to do it, or where to find it?

This technique, which produces results that can resemble marbling, was popularized by John Choma, but now instructions for it can be found on the Dharma Trading Company web site. Dharma's instructions are better written and easier to follow than Choma's were, so this is a very good thing. See their page on "Shaving Cream Dyeing".
