Re: Bunki Kramer's Eric Carle Insects-7th/8th


Date: Mon Oct 27 2003 - 06:21:02 PST

I am curious Bunki, or anyone else, how one keeps the paper from buckling?
We are doing Bunki's bugs or Matisse still life paintings with papers that we
have created.
Problem is, some elements, like vases, are large and have a lot of paint,
etc., on them and even with gluing and putting weight on them overnight they are
I don't want to use lamination or mod poge if I don't have to. (Some of the
papers are pastel and my area's art competition doesn't allow lamination, I
don't think.)

Also, my student with the broken arm has to keep his cast on longer. He was
preparing papers in an abstract way and hoped to be doing his collage along
side of us, but no more.
I, on a lark, let him melt crayon and paint. He seemed to like that.
Now I don't know how to get a project out of it tomorrow.
Anyone do any melted crayon???
I could even get a T-shirt for him, I guess. And do Batik.
I could sure use some help.
