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:
I order this product to teach my high school art students introduction to color theory and painting. Blick's Premium Tempera has excellent pigment quality, opacity, mixes fabulously, and is an excellent price for the quality of the product. For color theory I use turquoise, yellow, and magenta. I have also purchased black, white, orange, green, and violet and the pigments are fantastic for these colors as well. Unlike some other economy brands, the white is especially opaque and has a really nice consistency.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The best in true color tempera
By Ruth the cheer coach
from Poteet, TX.
I appreciate Blick Premium Grade Tempera paint for its true colors. Most tempera paints from other brands turn blue or green.
Not the best for window painting
from Port Orchard, WA
I bought this tempera for window painting. From the outside the coverage looks okay, but from the inside the paint looks thin and shows streaks. You can not layer the paint easily without removing the previous coat. I would say the tempera is okay for kids to use (on windows), but not for professional use.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Terrific coverage with Blick's Tempera
from Norristown, PA
Excellent coverage, goes on very smoothly, love it!
I would purchase this item again and recommend it highly.
from Antonito, Colorado
We use this product for many types of crafts and it is durable and goes a very long way.
This is the Best Product.
By Art Shea
from Clarkrange, TN
We use this with Art 1 Students who are beginning to paint to encourage them to continue because it is far better than the average tempera paint. It is mixable unlike the cheap brands and gives good results.
The service is excellent!
By St. Ann Art
from Prairie Village Kansas
We purchase products for our school annually and have the best service and support. The products are great and we receive them on time always.
very good quality tempera, good flow and coverage
Not the best but works.
By Elementary art teacher
from Denver, Co.
I have ordered all the primary and secondary colors in gallons. They arrive a bit lumpy and need to be shaken up repeatedly. One gallon was so lumpy it wouldn't pour out. If you don't mind the extra work to shake and pour into other containers it will do. I will be trying a different brand.

Love this paint for the excellent coverage and matte finish!
By c'est moi
from Charlottesville, VA
I teach high school and use it to teach color mixing and care of paints and brushes. I love the flat look compared to the sheen of acrylics. Really great coverage with that beautiful flat matte finish of tempera. We go onto use Acrylic but many of the students end up using the tempera for choice projects.
