Painting on tables?

So last year I decided to find a fun way to introduce printmaking to my Art 1 class.  That is when i came up with the plan to use washable paint right on the tables and then use paper to make a print.  We also sprayed them with water after the first print, and got a ghost print.  

The students have a lot of fun with this and they feel like they are doing something wrong at first.  It does take them a while to get started.  But once they do, they ask if they can do it several days in a row.  Gotta love any project that they are excited about.  

I even let them finger paint, which brings them back to their childhood.
