Artista II Liquid Washable Tempera is an economically priced tempera paint from the makers of Crayola. It comes in a wide variety of brilliant, opaque colors that deliver maximum coverage with minimum application. Artista II is "thixotropic," meaning that it is heavy-bodied and drip-free when left at rest. Shake, mix, or stir it, and it becomes thinner and more brushable, but it will always thicken again as it rests. This paint is excellent for traditional uses as well as for screen printing. It is freeze-thaw stable. Artista II Washable Tempera adheres well to many surfaces, including newspaper, cardboard, and papier maché. It can also be used for screen printing.
