Tempera paint is perfect for crafts, kids’ art projects, finger painting, and classroom projects. It’s watersoluble and has a smooth, creamy consistency and excellent coverage. Use it on paper, cardboard, cloth, wood, or canvas. It dries quickly — ideal for bringing projects home from school — and is easy to clean.
Find liquid tempera paint, tempera cakes, and tempera powder. Tempera cakes are similar to watercolor pans, but they’re more opaque than watercolors. Apply them to your surface with a wet brush. Tempera powder simply needs to be mixed with water before use.
Most tempera paint is non-toxic. It contains organic compounds that make them safe to use, but this also means they eventually will spoil.
Dispensers and cups for Liquid Tempera are a great solution for managing paint in a classroom! Use these dispensers and cups to keep your classroom neat, and to extend the shelf life of your tempera paints.
To prevent spoilage, 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.
