Re: TEMPERA(wasDrawing papers)

Hi Betsy,
Yesterday, after school (no snow day here) I went to a presentation put on by
Alphacolor. We tested and played with their Soft Pastels, Watercrayons and
Biggie Tempera Cakes. The pastels and watercrayons were terrible, but I was
impressed by the Tempera Cakes. I could control the transparency or opacity
really well. And they're big enough to use with a large brush. If I still
have my job and a budget next year, I'm going to order some for my K-5ers.
Someone mentioned they carry them in the Sax catalogue.
They gave us primary color samples. Maybe they'll send you some if you call.
Their toll-free # is 1-800-710-7915.
