Tempera Grassa information

Tempera Grassa information

Tempera grassa behaves just as the substance it is – as an egg-tempera emulsion that is weighed toward the oil – so it partakes of the qualities of both oil and egg emulsion – i.e fine hatching strokes are possible, but its also something you can block-in areas with, or (at a stretch) scumble with. It dries slower than egg tempera and faster than oils. As such it is great for underpainting, and with practice, much more.
