    Great suggestion. I like the idea of the milk cartons. At least with the 35
    high school students I will be able to have them prepare their own plaster.

    Do you think making egg tempera would work on this plaster? I guess I will just
    have to give it a shot myself first. If not I have PLENTY of water color
    paint. Will the oval crayolas work, or do you need the tubes for good colors on
    the plaster?
