Default Hello everyone

Hello every one, my name is Lelia Pissarro, I am French and live in London for the past 25 years and I love it.
I am a painter and have discovered Tempera by pure chance, a few years ago during a trip to Japan, I visited a phenomenal art shop called Itoya in Genza, Tokyo , I spent the whole day and a lot of money and bought amoungs many things a palette of 35 colours dry Tempera, since then I have been trying to find an other one in Europe with no success.
The writing on the box is both Japanese and Chinese and I was told that most certainely the factory was Chinese and they were not exporting in Europe or USA as they did not need to!
Would any one have an idea of where I could get an other simillar palette of colours?
I use pigments as well but when travelling this is not so practicle.

Thank you.

If you want to see my work, but there is no Tempera there! I am at

Default pigments in London

If you want pigments the best place in London is Cornelissens by the British museum. They sell them in small, tempera sized jars. Does this answer your question?
