Help! Peeling window paint!


Date: Wed Oct 17 2001 - 17:48:02 PDT

3rd grades painted a marsh scene on large windows today...
Thanks to this list and the previous art teacher I knew to add
dishwashing detergent to the paint... She also warned me not
to use white as it would peel and flake off. Thought I was doing
a good deed by mixing up quantities of paint that were not
"direct from the bottle", and I think that those paints I added
black to (copious amounts of brown and green!) were the
main culprits... also red and a couple others are falling off!
Just a touch of a finger sends these huge flakes of paint
falling to the floor! This is supposed to stay up until November,
but I don't think half of it is going to make it! Anything I can do
to fix it? By tomorrow??!!
