Egg Tempera and Casein Paints
Egg tempera and casein paints are some of the oldest art mediums in the world, and were used extensively in the Renaissance period before oil paints gained popularity. Beautiful paintings and icons done centuries ago in tempera and casein remain vivid and brilliant to this day! With animal protein binders (egg yolk for tempera, milk protein for casein) both these mediums dry quickly, and modern preservatives ensure their longevity and ease of use. From famous brands like Sennelier and Shiva, now you can bring centuries of art history into your own paintings with these ancient mediums — and all at ASW's fabulous low prices!
