Sennelier Egg Tempera
Sennelier Egg Tempera is an authentic formulation of classic egg tempera as used by artists since the Renaissance. In fact, before the rise of oil painting, egg tempera was the predominant painting medium in the 16th century. The Sennelier egg tempera is famous as the medium used by Marc Chagall in many of his most spectacular works.
Egg tempera is a semi-opaque water soluble and permanent painting medium, wonderful for fine art painting, restoration and icon painting. It is perfect for oil painters who need a highly pigmented, fine art colour alternative to oil painting and its solvents. Its archival characteristics are excellent as it does not age or yellow like oil paints. Pigments are bound with a centuries-old egg emulsion recipe, giving a satin-matt finish that is water resistant when dry. It is not recommended to use egg tempera in thick applications. These delicate colours hold their brush strokes and do not change colour when dry.
