> Anyone do a project with Spanish Amate painting?
> I tried one this week with neon paints on brown paper--nature as subject
> matter. The students painted an image of nature on brown (roll) paper with
> the neon paints. Then the kids cut out the image, pasted it on black
> (construction) paper and painted ( use the neon paints) a decorative frame
> around it (bird, flower, etc.) on the black paper. Awesome results!


I have never heard of Amate Painting. What is the premise? The project you
have listed sounds great!!!
