My 8th graders been working on 18" "Giacometti" sculptural figures on wood
bases with wire coathangers, paper mache, and then covering with brown
paper bagging. We've been using brown tempera paint as a base coat,
sponging on with green and then sponging on with gold paint. Other options
include still using a brown base with sponging on black then silver OR
sponging on with teal and then copper...all tempera paint. It's OKAY but
I'd like to find something else to do with them paintwise.

Have any of you used the spray stone-like stuff, the "marbled" effect
stuff, OR patina paint stuff from the local artstores? I'm looking for a
C-H-E-A-P antiquing idea to try other than what I'm already using. Any
ideas? Toodles.....
