Re: painting windows

I don't know what others have done, but I usually put some liquid dish soap in the paints. Not much, maybe a few drops. I think this helps it cover the glass without beading up, and the clean up afterwards is pretty good too.

I let a few of my 5th and 6th grade students each paint a window (metal framed) that measures about 3 x 5 feet, done it now for about four years.

Drops of soap and have no fear!

Tide with the tempera paint so it will stick. Suggestions? Thanks, Donna
