Re: gross tempera cakes

All the paint trays and disks were like that when I started at my present
school. I soaked and scrubbed for 30+ hours, then decided it would be a good
detention chore. They looked good after a while. I saved one scuzzy one to show
the students what not to do. Sorry, don't think there's any other solution than
scrubbing or chucking.
