How would it behave as compared to using the dry pigment besides the grit floating to the bottom of the pallet? What would the finished product be like? I have heard that it would make the water color pigment last longer and prevent fading. I do have some regular raw pigments, but I am curious. I use egg yolk, white wine and distilled water for my regular egg tempera painting. Thank you, I appreciate it. I enjoy this website very much. Regards, Michelle
Robert Vickrey in _New Techniques in Egg Tempera_ (p53) recommends trying tempera out with one's best tube watercolors mixed with the usual egg-water medium. He did many of his _Time_ covers this way. I was going to do this this afternoon until I was distracted by the discovery of the _Society of Tempera Painters_ website. I am eagerly looking forward to trying that method and also more traditional egg tempera with powdered pigments. Am glad the society is here.
