Hi there Teri. I was taking a grad class and one of the best ideas that came
out of it was with regards to printmaking. You use either old laminating
film...save those scraps or use plastic "overhead" sheets. You tape that
inside a file folder on just three sides so that you have an opening in
which to put a picture under if you are looking to make a print with much
detail...on the other side you tape a piece of paper on which your print
will appear. Each time you add ink you close the file folder on top of the
laminating film...this allows minimum mess, and maximum coloration of the
print. We were a bunch of adults and we had a great time. You can also wipe
off the laminating film quite easy and use it over and over. Hope this
helps. (AND I HOPE IT MAKES SENSE!!!hahaha) Stephanie
