Jazz is the first tempera paint that dries like glossy enamel. Traditional temperas go on wet and shiny, but dry flat and matte. Jazz is different. It looks and feels like an enamel, but remains water soluble and washes off of most surfaces, even after it dries.
The brilliant colors and excellent coverage of the Opaque glosses make it perfect for lettering, murals, and general use.
Metallic Gloss gives sparkle and effect, while Fluorescent gloss adds extra emphasis to any project. Try blending Metallics with Transparents for unusual shimmering effects. All colors are intermixable.
Apply Jazz Gloss Tempera over Jazz Liquid Tempera to combine matte and gloss effects. Reverse the order, using the Liquid Tempera as the top layer, for an antique or crackle finish. When Jazz paints are dry, a clear acrylic spray or varnish can give you a permanent waterproof finish.
Jazz cleans up easily with soap and water. Non-toxic, it conforms to ASTM D 4236. It's packaged in 16 oz (.47 L) plastic squeeze bottles that are easy to reseal to ensure freshness.
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.
