Sennelier Artist Quality Egg Tempera
Much has been written about the historical importance of this delicate, but enduring archival painting medium. Capable of the strength and the richness of oil painting, it is also produces the delicate subtlety of watercolour wash, drying to its characteristic satin sheen. Evident in the beauty of icons, Sennelier’s century-old formula has proven itself since it does not yellow or deteriorate over time and is an excellent choice for all oil painters as an underpainting base to work up compositions and colours. In the US in recent years, Sennelier tempera has been increasingly adopted by artists wishing to obtain the unique effects of tempera without the problems of solvents and cleanup of materials. Although these products are water-soluble, they dry to a satin finish which is water-resistant. Colours are available in 21ml tubes.
