  1. Not sure if it’s the cheap paint we have at our school or if the construction paper is too absorbent but we don’t get the nice opague paint cover on our paper. It looks as if the paint was soaked up by the paper. Also the paper curls up significantly making it nearly impossible to hang up. Any suggestions? Love your website!

    • Probably the paper. I use Tru-Ray sulphite paper (you can find a link in my art supply tab in the side bar).
