Welcome to dickblick
Artista II Liquid Washable Tempera is an economically priced tempera paint from the makers of Crayola. It comes in a wide variety of brilliant, opaque colors that deliver maximum coverage with minimum application.
Artista II is "thixotropic," meaning that it is heavy-bodied and drip-free when left at rest. Shake, mix, or stir it, and it becomes thinner and more brushable, but it will always thicken again as it rests. This paint is excellent for traditional uses as well as for screen printing. It is freeze-thaw stable.
Artista II Washable Tempera adheres well to many surfaces, including newspaper, cardboard, and papier maché. It can also be used for screen printing.

Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.
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.

Crayola Tempura Paints
By Artsy K
This paint is second to none. I have tried other brands and they are transparent. This works well and the colours are beautiful.

The color is vibrant and the consistency is very nice.
Great paint. I will buy again.
I use this paint with my elementary students. Nice bright colors, easy to use, and good price.
Great for my preschooler!

Washable and great coverage on paper or canvas. I bought primary colors with white to mix and my 3 year old loves the freedom to experiment!

This tempra does not separate in your cabinet and explode like some les expensive brands. It is also less frustrating for kids as you only need one coast instead of several coats with less expensive brands.
By Mrs. Kindergarten

I ordered a complete set of Crayola tempera paints and an X-acto pencil sharpener for my Kindergarten class. The materials were sent in an environmentally safe package, which goes along with our unit, and packaged together. After opening the products, the pencil sharpener has been used approximately 600 times since its arrival. I was hesitant at first for my students to use the sharpener, but it is durable, completely safe, and I highly recommend it to teachers. The paint has the most brilliant colors I have seen in a long time! I have enjoyed using them with my students, and most certainly will come back and order additional materials from blick! Materials are student friendly and teacher approved!
