Egg Tempera Painting

been playing with egg tempera... its hard...

Working with Egg Tempera is like nothing else. It dries so quickly, but when done right creates a beautiful satin finish. To make egg tempera paints, mix the yolk of one egg with a bit of water in a small dish. On a palette mix egg mixture with a bit of powdered pigment and a touch of water until you get a shiny medium bodied consistency... Paint in small strokes building up your surface....

practice and repeat

lots and lots of practice.  This is my first and its still a work in progress. Bon Courage!
