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.

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.
