What is the difference between the washable paint and the Crayola brand
tempera?
If you can afford it, I suggest Crayola Premier Paint. Its bright colors and
opaque coverage make it far superior to the watered down, lumpy, and streaky
(Crayola) washable paint. But, I have also discovered (thanks to Bunki) Sax
Premier (or whatever they call their top of the line tempera). I like it even
more than Crayola because it keeps a smooth creamy consistancy. I do,
however, order both brands for the slight variations of color, especially in the
blues.
