I have a question about painting a roll up backdrop. Our school is starting a once a week TV broadcast of book review, school news, etc. and the GT reading teacher has asked me about painting a backdrop that can roll up onto one of those map things so that they can use the map side for weather and then flip it over for the backdrop for the news segment.
To be honest, I'm not much of a painter. I paint with tempera and watercolor with my students, but my specialty is clay. So, I was hoping for some advice. I am thinking about getting some canvas and gessoing it and then using acrylic for the backdrop/painting but I'm a little worried about cracking - so perhaps I should use oil paint?
I'm just not sure and would love some input from all the experience on this list.
