Re: Favorite supports for egg tempera

I recently started using egg tempera (Daler Rowney brand) as underpainting for oils and for this I use Ampersand panels - pastelbord and claybord. They are absorbent and smooth (well, pastelbord more toothy but still great surface).

Re: Favorite supports for egg tempera

My husband (an artist and art educator) is going to try egg tempera. We have chickens, and I'd like to see him create the tempera paint.. but we have never done it before! Following this thread.

Re: Favorite supports for egg tempera

Everyone wants to play! There are forums and threads on this huge web site which will help you with the technicalities of posting and adding photos. If you google jpg and other formats you will get simple information how to convert the tiff files. Generally people do not like to discuss items 'off the thread'

Re: Favorite supports for egg tempera

I use masonite panels that I prepare myself. I size the panel with rabbit skin glue and then apply three layers powdered limestone mixed with the size. I've found that it is very important to size and prime both sides of the panel to prevent warping.

Re: Favorite supports for egg tempera

I kind have taken an unconventional approach to this. I have spend the past few years experimenting and refining my system of recycling classroom paper from a local school. It allows me to have a textured surface which I'm able to manipulate to my liking. It also gives me a somewhat absorbent surface which helps me to achieve certain effects that I use in conjunction with the texture. I'm not sure if that makes much sense.
