Just a variation on the "wall" surface: Cut large chunks of white
36" rolled craft paper, crumple into balls and submerge into a 5 gal. bucket of
diluted black or brown tempera. Take them out, smooth just a little and dry.
Tear edges to naturalize shapes. The result is a neutral surface with an
almost batik-like crackle that unifies the piece and resembles rock surface.
I have also crumpled paper bags and rubbed surface with dark crayon to
accentuate the cracks when time was short. After surface is prepared, add
images in whatever manner you wish. Displaying pieces overlapping on hallway
or classroom walls and ceiling simulates the cave-like atmosphere. judy
