Re: [teacherartexchange] budget/red tape ideas?

Skin colored curtains - - -YUCK!! Don't know if this will help or not, but
here goes! My classroom has skin-colored, rubberized roll up shades. I took
them down, stretched them out on the artroom tables and started sponge
painting. I used waterbased printing ink because that is what I had. I started
with a brayer and rolled on an uneven layer of white as sort of a base coat,
allowing the shade color to show through. Next I mixed up a couple of colors
of turquoise and teal and started sponging. The ugly shade color almost look
like gold showing through around the other colors!! I let them dry and
re-hung them. That was 4 years ago and they still look great!
