RE: [art_education] Re: faux stained glass
- Hhhhmmm....go figure!! (regarding cleanup)
Well, I think I have chosen my solution from the many fantastic and helpful ideas that you all have shared with me. I just ran to Wal-mart during my lunch and grabbed as many rolls as they had of the clear "basket wrapping". It was $1.47 for a 30" x 10' roll. Time to cut and tape. Hopefully I will have some images to share with all of you as a "thank you" soon.

We painted on the windows one year with tempera paint. It is semi-
transparent and will wash off fairly easily too. We drew the scenes
on large sheets of bulletin board paper taped it to the outside of
the window then painted on the inside. I found the students liked to
paint them more than remove them. :) Wanda

over simplicity and breaking ideas down to make them super simple.
Now my problem is trying to find the perfect "canvas" to cover the
windows with. I attempted saran wrap but the static in the air would
drive us all crazy. I then covered a window with the left over part
of a laminate roll. This seems great but my supply is very limited.
One student suggested bubble wrap...I like it but cost...I am heading
over to wal-mart during my break but thought I'd run it by ya'll
> Second. While I was looking at IAD for stained glass ideas, I ran
across these amazing fish created out of 2 liter bottles. The author
says the kids colored patterns inside the bottles with "gel pens". I
was hoping there was someone out there who could give me some more
information. I am picturing skinny little gel pens much like a
regular writing pen....this I can't see working...a lot of area needs
to be covered. If you do not know what I am referring to, check them
out they are so great!! If you do...help!
