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 am a high school art teacher and I use this paint for basic projects in my Art 1 class. Acrylic paint can be very expensive although preferable so with beginners I use tempera because you can get a lot for a good price. I would not use tempera for more serious, experienced students as it does not layer very well and the colors are not as vibrant as acrylic. Either way, when I buy tempera or acrylic I buy the Blick brand because its reliable and fairly priced.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Color Wheel project painted with Blick tempera. We used red, yellow, and blue to mix all of the secondary and tertiary colors.

Love these temperas, the best ones I have found so far. (And I have tried several brands including European ones.) Creamy and saturated with color. Nicely thick and opaque. Can be diluted a bit. Really good value.Even had these shipped to Europe. It went fast and was well packaged.

I have been using Blick Tempera for many years in my elementary art classroom. I really like its consistency and color density. Would highly recommend this product.
For the most part...
from Lancaster, CA
The paint was received in overall good condition. Some of the bottles were popped open but nothing major. My only gripe is that the yellow has a consistency of water with large clumps at the bottom. We tried to shake the bottle vigorously for several minutes and no change. The other paints have good overall pigmentation. I must have just received a bad container of yellow. We also received some pumps that dispense the perfect amount of paint and some cups for our young painters to use which was a bonus.
Merchant response: We're sorry to hear that the yellow tempera wasn't the correct consistency, and we're happy to take care of this for you. Please look for an email from one of our Customer Care Agents who will be following up to assist you.
Blick Premium Tempera

Green paint purchased this year was more opaque than the bottle purchased in 2015 bottle. White and green paints are more opaque and less streaky than other less expensive brands. Green created a solid color with one coat. White mixed forhighlighting other colors and did not blend in so much that it disappeared

I absolutely love the Blick Premium Grade tempera in my elementary art room! It is well worth the extra cost for Premium - the colors appear more vibrant and coverage seems better compared to the Essentials or Student Grade tempera.
I would buy again

Purchased paint for my grandchildren. Could not find the paint in any of the stores I went to. Was pleased with ordering from a user-friendly page, sufficient packaging to protect items, and fast delivery. I would purchase from this company again.
Great color and flow!
