Pour Paintings-Results

I'm sorry to disappoint, but I did not get any photos of the finished projects before I needed to send them home. Oh how the end of the year is coming quickly! As suspected, the paint did crack. I was sad, but the kids loved it! I sprayed some clear spray paint over them to try and keep them intact a bit. One kid started picking at his paint chips and discovered that it actually looks really cool underneath! The paint dyed the wood, leaving the same pattern on the wood without the depth of the paint. I'm thinking I'll buy some Acrylic for next year to try this with-that's what Holton Rower's paintings use.

I would try adding a dose of Elmer's glue or Mod Podge to the tempera. If I've already suggested that, I apologize for repeating myself!
