Susan, I agree with you about the consistency and brilliance of Sax
Ultra Plus, and I LOVE not having to mix them. How are you dealing with
the staining? Have you found a way to get these stains out of kids
clothes? These paints seem like acrylics!
LOL...The staining worked beautifully on the Yankee shirts the kids all wore
yesterday after the defeat of my Red Sox ....Seriously, at the beginning of
the school year I send a note home asking the parents to send their children
dressed appropriately for art on art day. That means that they can come with a
cover-up or wearing something they don't mind getting stained. This way the
responsibility lies solely with each child. I will not compromise my program in
any way, and I make it clear to the parents that in order to acheive the
maximum success for their child, I can not limit my supplies.
