Re: [teacherartexchange] boards for painting - suggestions?

You can buy cheap paneling at the hardware store made
with masonite. These are typically 4'x8' and can be
cut with a hand saw or table saw. I have used them as
a background and in some cases these panels are
cheaper than buying real masonite. Check out your
local store.
