I use shower curtains or liners (from the dollar store) cut into 6 to 8 pieces. When I teach at the high school enrichment program I include a piece in each "goody" bag to protect the work surface. Most of my students tell me they continue to use it at home also.

Use shiny magazine pages as a palette for your paints. If you find you use enough paints that it's a bit limp, use the magazine covers. Makes a free palette and clean up is just a matter of throwing it away! Everyone usually has a spare magazine lying around. Enjoy!
