I am doing the same thing here at my school. I am using a duck cloth -
or a painter's drop cloth- it is thick- works like canvas and I will
Gesso it first. I have used White denim in the past and have used the
same process. Works great! We use acrylics on it. You can also get sheet
metal and do the same thing if you can find someone to donate scrap.

Subject: [teacherartexchange] mural
I want to install a mural on a brick wall and wondered if anyone had
either a procedure or product that worked.
Also, I wanted to produce the mural as a temporary/changeable thing on
foam or gator board. I am concerned about students bumping into the
thing but also about keeping it lightweight for the installation...
