Shaving Cream Screen Printing

I want the printing to appear muted, so I went to a method I used a lot back before I invested in a huge selection of screen printing inks.  I am using unscented shaving gel, which dispenses thick and foams up with stirring action.  This mixes well with any type of paint.  In this case, I am using Jacquard Lumiere.  It gives a more subtle, less intense, less distinct print. 

The other really nice benefit is that that screens wash out super easily because of the shaving cream in the printing mixture.
