Re: Eric Carle Materials

have you seen his video on how he creates the papers? i think the title is
"Eric Carle: Picture Writer" and the kids love to see how he makes his
papers and creates his stories and collages.
i have always used whatever paper was on hand and then i "iron" them in the
old dry mount press. this flattens out everything that is curled or wrinkly.
the press is one of my most indispensible pieces of equipment but they are
getting harder and harder to find since laminating machines took over. look
for one in your school basement.
