I asked this question on the tole painting site, but things seem to be slow there. What exactly is tempera paint? What is it used for and how is it different from acrylic paints? Thank you.

RE: tempera paint

Tempera=temporary. I think it is type used on windows & by teachers in classrooms. I found some at church when I cleaned out resource room. I haven't used it that I remember but it comes in jars & I think even in larger containers that you take the powder out & mix with water. It is not meant to last very long. At least that is my understanding of it. Isn't it what they put Xmas decorations on windows with????? Scratches easily, washes off with soap & water. Help!!! Jan
