Thanks.  Bette-jane, you spread the shaving cream on a surface and frost it like you would a cake then dot it with food coloring.  With a toothpick or skewer swirl the colors around then lightly lay your photo paper glossy side down.  Remove paper and scrape cream off.  My left hand is paralized  so I work with only one hand,  You can get some nice patterns and with two hands lifting the paper off it comes  out much better.  It is a lot of fun.
