THE MAIN ADVANTAGES OF TEMPERA COLOURS
- Rich, bright, deep colours, very close in consistency to oil paints.
- MASTER CLASS TEMPERA paints are made without any whitening, matting or other ﬁllers, do not change their shades after drying.
- While painting, the layers of the paint dry evenly and quickly, and do not form a ﬁlm on the surface like acrylic paints do. This unique property is very conducive to creating artwork that retains colour purity.
To date, the series offers 39 bright, saturated, opaque colours, including those with genuine cobalt and cadmium pigments. 31 of them are mono-pigment colours, 37 colours – with the highest lightfastness rating, 2 colours – with average lightfastness.

Tempera is an absolutely unique paint, it is suitable for artists who like oil, acrylic or watercolour. The most important difference between tempera and oil is that it is diluted with water. Tempera is slightly less dense than oil, but it can make a pasty stroke.
Tempera is my favorite material for sketches. I like to use it in the plein air, because it is water-based colours, no solvents are needed, all you need is paper or cardboard, Tempera and water, as in watercolour painting, and it is very convenient.
As for me, I consider Tempera as versatile medium, that allows you to work pasty, like with oils and create big detailed paintings, but also make fast sketches on any paper you have at hand
