Welcome to dickblick
Blick Premium Grade Tempera is Blick's top-of-the-line tempera paint. It's thicker, with a consistent viscosity that stirs easily, then "bodies up" to its original viscosity. It flows more easily than Blick's Student Grade tempera, yet is still sag-free and drip-free when applied to paper. It contains a high concentration of high-quality pigments, has high color strength, is lightfast, and it won't flake, chip, or crack.
It washes up with soap and water and is freeze-thaw stable. Choose from a variety of brilliant, blendable colors, including six fluorescent shades. For basic color-mixing, we recommend that you use Turquoise, Magenta, and Yellow.
Lockable pump lids for gallons and half-gallons are sold separately.
This product is made in the USA.

Storage tip — All tempera paints contain organic compounds that make them safe to use, even if ingested, but this also means they eventually will spoil. To prevent spoilage, Blick recommends that you close the lid tightly after use and avoid returning unused liquid tempera to its original container after exposure to air. Always store tempera paints in their original containers, in a cool, dry place.

Comments about Blick Premium Grade Tempera:
We use these paints in our elementary art program. Love the coverage it provides and the colors are so deep. I love how they look on black, great pop! The only downside is that the yellow is extremely thick and needs a lot of stirring and shaking for it to pour out of the gallon. Will try a pump.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I teach acrylic wine painting classes an d feel these paints are very easy for begginers as well as professionals. They mix well to achieve different colors without having to purchase to many colors. They can be both opaque and transparent as well as pastel to solid colors. Thanks for such a great product that really helps techs like myself be able to purchase has what we need without it eating up all the profits. Thanks again.

High Quality Tempera Paint
By Marleen the Art Teacher
from Broomfield, CO
I use the Premium Grade Dick Blick Tempera Paint with my 7th grade art students to teach color mixing/ color theory. I give them the primary colors only and they have to create a color wheel and a painting using a subject of their choice and mixing secondary/ tertiary colors. This tempera paint mixes well, but more importantly- it covers paper well as it is a thicker quality than other brands.

Blick Premium Grade Tempura Paint
By Northside JPC
from Warner Robins, GA
We use this paint to decorate Styrofoam for our annual spirit week. The coverage is excellent. A little goes a long way. The paint stores well and doesn't separate like other paints. We will continue to purchase through Blick because of their quality and the speed at which our materials are shipped. Even when we have extremely large order, it never takes more than a week to arrive.
from Dania Beach, FL
Best coverage. Actually was the same color as sold. Ordered both Premium and Essential and both were outstanding!
