Squirt enough shaving cream on the tray to cover the surface.  Spread it around to make the surface relatively even, it won't be smooth.

Once you have your shaving cream on the tray, squirt some acrylic paint onto it.

Then using a toothpick, paintbrush, spoon, or something similar, zigzag gently though the paint to give it a marbled effect.

Using cardstock or cardboard paper cut out egg shapes paint . 

Press your paper into the paint/shaving cream and let it sit for a few seconds. Remove the paper by lifting it straight up.  Let the paint/shaving cream sit on the paper for a couple of minutes before squeegeeing it off the paper. Gently and smoothly squeegee the shaving cream off the paper.  It will remove the shaving cream, but not the paint

Deviled Colored Eggs

Two things that we always incorporate into our Easter is the coloring of eggs and deviled eggs. I love the recipe I found here that puts these two together. They offer your Easter dinner a bit of color and a surprise. Hope you enjoy


 Offer everyone something to nibble on between the Easter egg hunt and the big feast with this colorful palette of deviled Easter Eggs. I like mine with a little pepper mixed in.

– 10 hard boiled eggs
– 1/2 cup mayonnaise
– food coloring

Bring water over the stove to a boil with your eggs in the pot. Turn down the heat to low, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, cool the eggs with running cold water. Peel the eggs, cut them in half, and place the yolks in a separate bowl.  Make the colors just as you would to dye Easter eggs and dip the whites, letting them dry. Meanwhile, mash the yolks and add mayonnaise along with any other add-ins like bacon, pepper, or chives. Fill the emptied egg white halves with your yolk mixture and decorate
