Default sennelier egg tempera emulsion in a tube

Does anyone have any experience with sennelier egg tempera tube colors? I'm experimenting with them for large washes of solid color and having a little trouble getting them even.

Also, how does the surface of a tempera painting that is not an emulsion dry? I hear matte, but can it be buffed to a semi gloss like casein? When I buff this painting done with Sennelier it is fairly glossy.

Also, I'm considering adding a little bit of oil in the upper layers to avoid the cracking I get when i don't watch the lean to fat rule very carefully.

Any help appreciated.
