Textured Paint Advice


Date: Thu Dec 04 2003 - 15:24:51 PST

Oh wise ones,
     We just finished building three dimensional cardboard sculptures (my fifth grade students). We want to finish them with a textured paint so thaey look as though they're made of stone. I tried adding sand to tempera paint and painted a demo piece. It's cracking slightly in places, but my bigger concern is that as it's handled, the sand seems to be rubbing off. Can I seal them with something or use something else entirely?
