Comments about Sennelier Egg Tempera Binding Medium:
I like this stuff. It's water soluable and so I use it to improve the flow of my watercolors and slow their drying time. The mix of egg, gum, and vegetable oil seems to be a good combination and has these effects; it appears that the vegetable oil is used as a very effective preservative but it also seems to improve the flow; it appears that the gum lets you rework the paint even after it is dry by applying more water to the surface, which is great for watercolor, however because of that I wouldn't recommend using it in a varnish layer and would only add very small amounts to traditional egg tempera as this commercial stuff seems to be less water resistant than pure egg yolk by comparison when they are both dry; when dry the medium remains flexible (probably also because of the gum) and when using it on paper I can bend and flex and roll the paper without the paint cracking after the paint is dry. The jar is large (200 ml) and more than enough for my purposes. Once opening you should probably stir it a few times every month so that it doesn't entirely separate. I let mine sit for many months without refrigeration. It separated and got dark, but I simply restired it, let it sit for a day and it seems fine now and smells the same as when I bought it.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
