Default mastiha shop in athens - greece

for those interested in egg tempera & Mastic gum

this is a site dedicated only to Mastic gum found on the Island of Chios and now trading in a new outlet, you can order mastic gum tears [small, medium, large or extracts directly]

EGG-TEMPERA
TEMPERA'S ARE EMULSIONS, water and oil plus the stabilizer. The first tempera was made about 1000 A/D, first with mastic, than linseed oil. The ratio's went like this; one part egg, one part mastic or oil, OR, two parts egg, one part oil, one part mastic. More egg made it water based, more oil made it oil based. Later sun thickened oils or stand oil were used. Most liked to use Strasbourg turpentine [balsam], today we have to use Venetian or Canadian turpentine because no one imports Strasbourg to the U.S. except http://www.kremer-pigmente.de/

They really need to improve that website.

I had to wait through a really bad 5 minute movie before I could do anything. And then I couldnt find any place where anything could be ordered.
