Sennelier Deluxe Egg Tempera Set

Sennelier Wooden-boxed sets of 12 x 21ml tubes, plus 1 x 34ml white tube

Egg tempera is a semi-opaque water soluble and permanent painting medium wonderful for fine art painting.  It is perfect for oil painters who need a highly pigmented, fine art colour alternative to oil painting and its solvents.

Much has been written about the historical importance of this delicate, but enduring archival painting medium. Capable of the strength and the richness of oil painting, it also produces the delicate subtlety of watercolour wash, drying to its characteristic satin sheen finish which is water-resistant.

Evident in the beauty of icons, Sennelier’s century-old formula has proven itself since it does not yellow or deteriorate over time and is an excellent choice for all oil painters as an underpainting base to work up compositions and colours.

Its archival characteristics are excellent and do not age or yellow like oil paints, as evidenced by lasting luminosity and beauty of Renaissance paintings.

Sennelier uses the same premium quality pigments in this line of egg tempera as they do in their oil paints, assuring the same unequalled vibrancy and brilliance as in the Sennelier oils.

Sennelier egg tempera has working qualities and a finish that is only found in authentic egg tempera made in this traditional manner. These delicate colours hold their brush strokes and do not change when dry. They can be worked with a brush or a palette knife (diluted with water) on non-greasy supports like acrylic primed canvas or paper. Preliminary sketches can be drawn on canvases, followed by oil paints
