You might try using pieces of sheet rock over which you spread a thin coat of
joint compound and then paint with tempera on the surface as it begins to
harden to simulate the fresco process. Making prelimary linear drawings
(cartoons) will help the organization of the painting and the laying in of
color. If you pounce holes along the lines in the cartoons you can transfer
the sketch to the drying joint compound by tapping a black board erasure with
colored chalk over the sketch layed on top of the wet surface. The powdered
chalk will leave dotted outlines on the stiffening compound to provide
guidance for the painting.
