Saving Paper in a Creative Way

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

I work with a creative genius named Julie Ham (D.E.C.E.). After hearing an idea from a colleague who had their students finger-paint on a table, she thought that it would be neat to paint on mirrors. Students can paint to their heart's desire and never use a single piece of paper. All you have to do is snap a photo of the final painting, wipe, and start over! Incredible!

  1. or make a print of it - of course that doesn't save paper, but one could use a thinner paper that wouldn't stand up to the fingerpaint process, like newspaper.

  2. Great idea! What paint works the best and wipes off the best?
    Thank you!

  3. Hi,

    We have been using crayola water colour paint, and sometimes have the students take the imprint of it on newsprint paper.

  4. I love all the mirrors you use (along with everything else I see!). Where do you source them?

  5. They are either from the dollar store or Ikea. I believe there are four per pack.
