Tempera paints are water-based paints designed for painting on paper, paperboard, cardboard, wood and plaster. The components used cause an even distribution of paint on the surface. High-quality, finely ground pigments are used in paints in such high concentrations that they provide very intensive, vibrant colors, even at high dilution. Surfaces painted with ASTRA tempera paints become very gently matte and velvety after drying. Tempera paints are intended mainly for fine arts students.
