Re: [teacherartexchange] My Product Preferences/paint, oil pastels, brushes


Date: Sun Jan 29 2006 - 14:52:07 PST

Tempera Paint - - - I have been using Sax Versa Temp. It is great. I have
been very satisfied with it. Is the Sax Ultra Plus tempera worth the price
difference? I may have to order some and try it. I saw the Sax True Color
listed as a "mural paint". Not sure exactly what that means.
I am just crazy about the Portfolio Oil Pastels which are water soluble.
(Thanks Woody!) This is my first year using the Portfolio brand. Some of the
cheaper brands are so messy. The quality of my students work using the
Portfolio brand has tremendously improved. My students are crazy about them. The
package shows 6 different ways they can be used. No more little waxy bits of
pastel stuck all over everything!!
I have really been disappointed with some of my new brushes. The handles
seem to come out of the ferrules. I've been teaching for years and have not
had this problem until the past 3 or 4 years? Can't figure it out. HELP!
