Egg tempera is a delicate medium made from egg yolks and powdered pigments. It is a water soluble mixture that builds form through layers and layers of thin paint strokes that have an intrinsically transparent nature. Light penetrates down and bounces back up capturing color in a way that is unlike any other medium.
