Painting medium

Tempera is the most suitable painting medium for primary art programmes. Liquid tempera can be applied freely, has good covering capacity and can produce vivid and subtle effects. A full basic colour range is essential to ensure purposeful colour mixing and matching. Children can experiment in combining tempera with crayon or pastel, for example, for mixed-media effects. Buy the best-quality strong, deep, saturated colours possible.
