Thank you again. I made this painting with the egg tempera emultion that follows:
1 part of egg, only the yolk, without the membrane
1 part of water
1 part of linseed oil
1 part of damar varnish
1 part of water

It is very important to guard the order of the elements. Put first the yolk in a bottle then the water and shake it very strong. Then put the linseed oil and shake it again very strong in order to make an emultion, this is, a mixture between water and oil. Then put the damar varnish and shake it very strong again. Then again the water and shake it very strong again in order to finish the emultion. And it's ready, just add the pigment and paint.
