  1. Hi all,
    Hope you're enjoying the Easter break so far. I'm currently putting together a Castles display and I would like the background to be similar to that of a castle wall. Has anyone any idea how I could go about this please? I did consider using a sponge in the shape of a brick and printing them on. Any advice would be great.
    Thank you in advance.

    I've done this. I got the children to paint big sheets of paper grey. Then they cut out stone shapes and we built the castle on the wall as if we were building a real castle. Good fun and it looked great.

    How did you ensure that the stones fitted together? I'm guessing that they were different sizes.
     
  5. I have done the sponge printing effect before. It was effective and went down well. It has the added bonus that it doesn't take too long to do!
    Have used all sorts of effects like this on odd occasions, such as stars for space, clouds etc.
