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.

Great for student use!

Comments about Blick Premium Grade Tempera:
I use this in my middle school classroom. My only complaint is that like other temperas out there, it has a short shelve life. My advise it to use it fast. It will become too watery after a few months, but I expect this for the price. If you are buying in bulk for a classroom/studio this is the product for you. If purchasing for home use, go with a higher end Blick Tempera especially if you will not use it quickly. Either way Blick is a much better value than competitors.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Would definitely buy this product again!
from Thousand Oaks, CA
These Premium Grade Tempera paint are more expensive but well worth the cost. They go on easier and cover better. Will definitely buy again.
Hands down the best for kids
This paint covers well without having to do a second coat. Colors are really good but the only one I would not recommend is the peach. It's more of a lite tan color. Quality is there though.
Just what we needed!
from Orderville, UT
This is used in our high school art class.
Just what I was looking for
from Olympia WA
I'm using the tempras to play with and explore--all about the process and emotions. They're inexpensive and the colors are terrific. Really glad I bought them.
Great Quality Paint!
from Clayton CA
I paint a lot of signs, and this paint always come through for me. No matter what color I use, the pigment is always strong and long-lasting on the signs. It's a great value.
I would most definitely purchase these products again.

Very satisfy with the promptness of the purchased and the extras steps taken of securing the purchased so that it was received in a timely manner and secure.
Way better than anything you can buy in a store!!!!
By Relay Runner

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!

Thick & consistent color. Turquoise was a little darker than expected but easily fixed with white & a little green.
