For younger grades, I like coloring a picture and rubbing baby oil on it to make it transluscent. But we'd like to try something different in the older grades.
We've tried using overhead transparencies, but struggle with what to use on them. Sharpies seem to temporarily dry out after just a few strokes. Other permanent markers seems to end up very streaky looking. I tried a sample with acrylic paint which looks nice on the table, but not so nice when hung in a window. One time we used the puffy paint tubes which wasn't too bad, but they sure went through the tubes in a hurry.
So I don't know if I'm expecting too much, or if I've just not figured out the right method to use. Thoughts?
The specific lesson we're doing this time is The Last Supper, so we're wanting to show the bread and the wine.
