    A painter's drop cloth

    By snp

    from Auburn, AL

    Pros

    • Easy to Use

    Cons

    • Not What I Expected

    Best Uses

    • As A Drop Cloth

    Comments about   Cooperative Mural Art - 4' x 10':

    This is a painter's drop cloth, not "a sheet of art material," and you can purchase one at any home improvement store for half the price. I don't mind when products are described as being good for other uses than the manufacturer intended, as long as that is clear in the description. Discount School Supply does this with Bingo Bottles and pipettes and I applaud them for their creative adaptations. However, I do not think it is fair to state that this particular item is an "art material" when that is not true. I suppose I wouldn't mind so much if the drop cloth was truly effective as a mural canvas, but it isn't. The material is quite thin. It can tear when you paint on it with a paint brush. It is difficult to move from ground to wall, even when the paint has dried. It is overpriced for what it actually is.

    Perfect!

    Comments about   Cooperative Mural Art - 4' x 10':

    Cut to size for wall hangings, with casing sewn by me for fat green straws through which hanging ribbon was threaded. Preschoolers and toddlers used bingo bottled liquid watercolors (Colorations) and glitter paints (Lakeshore) to flow on color, and created stunning art. Mothers Day gifts brought parents to a complete, jaw-dropping halt, and every single child's work got put up on their home walls with pride. One family even framed the final work. I took the project to my Alzheimer's-plagued mom, and she also enjoyed making a beautiful hanging. The plastic backing strengthens the final piece and reduces the mess, and the absorbency of the paper spreads the color and mingles it in beguiling ways. A spectacular creation for each person. Next use, pennants for the back yard!

    It is basically a thin painters dropcloth. Literally that is what the packaging says.
