Sennelier Egg Tempera is an authentic formulation of classic egg tempera as used by artists since the Renaissance. In fact, before the rise of oil painting, egg tempera was the predominant painting medium in the 16th century.
Egg tempera is a semi-opaque water soluble and permanent painting medium, wonderful for fine art painting, restoration and icon painting. Its archival characteristics are excellent as it does not age or yellow like oil paints. Pigments are bound with a centuries old egg emulsion recipe, giving a satin-matt finish that is water-resistant when dry. These delicate colours hold their brush strokes and do not change colour when dry. It is not recommended to use egg tempera in thick applications.
