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.

Way better than anything you can buy in a store!!!!

Comments about Blick Premium Grade Tempera:
I have done a ton of banner painting for the schools and vehicle decorating for relay teams. This paint is the best! Not the cheapest, but you get what you pay for. It was recommended to me by my 4th grader's art teacher and it performs beautifully. It goes on smooth and thick. It covers even black paper well and in my experience washes off of a waxed vehicle really well with soap and water.It came off better than "window writers" and you have the advantage of being able to mix just the right color and using the right sized brush instead of a drippy 1 size sponge tip. This paint will run a bit in the rain but so will window writers. We won first prize last year for best decorated van last for Hood To Coast, Oregon. We did an ode to Prince and Rock 'n' Roll and everyone kept asking us what we used to paint our vans! You now know the secret ingredient!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great paint for art classes.
I have tried other kinds and returned to this.
By Art Lit Mom

Thick & consistent color. Turquoise was a little darker than expected but easily fixed with white & a little green.
I've had some issues. . .
By Art Teacher Steph
from Lakeland, TN
I love the vibrant colors. Negatives are that I've had issues with clumping and molding, as well as the pumps clogging.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Merchant response: Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with our Premium Tempera. Paints such as poster paints and temperas that are intended for classroom use, and for children, often contain an organic binder that is subject to degradation if not stored properly or used within a reasonable period of time. Please know that our Product Information Team is happy to share best practices that will ensure your paints last as long as possible. Product Specialists are available weekdays from 8am to 5:30pm CST at 1-800-933-2542 or email@example.com.
Such lovely colors!

Love using this for special projects. It paints easily and cleans up well.
from Goodyear AZ
I order every summer the solids and fluorescents as they work so well on all types of medium for my art camps. Dry quickly, vibrant colors and good value. I cannot get a comparable product at my local box store.

Excellent Paint for the Elementary ART STUDIO
By missmaryolson...... all one word
from Santa Fe, New Mexico
I paint with 400 children with this paint each school year. It holds well in small containers, color mixes pretty well. MAJOR weakness: THE VIOLET... it is always thin and the chemistry seems different. The violet is not transparent.
